| book description |

‘This book offers a front row seat to history as it is being made’ ANNE APPLEBAUM 'This is the Zelensky book we’ve been waiting for’ CATHERINE BELTON 'An elegant account of the invasion’s first year as seen by those in the very eye of the storm' DAILY TELEGRAPH TIMES: A BEST BOOK OF 2024 – NEXT YEAR’S TOP READS GUARDIAN: BOOKS TO LOOK OUT FOR IN 2024 INDEPENDENT: A BOOK OF THE MONTH WATERSTONES: JANUARY’S BEST BOOKS WRITTEN WITH UNPRECEDENTED ACCESS, THIS IS THE FIRST INSIDE, INTIMATE ACCOUNT OF THE RUSSIAN INVASION OF UKRAINE FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF PRESIDENT ZELENSKY AND HIS TEAM. Based on four years of reporting; extensive travels with President Zelensky to the front; and dozens of interviews with him, his wife, his friends and enemies, his advisers, ministers and military commanders, The Showman tells an intimate and eye-opening story of the President’s evolution from a slapstick actor to a symbol of resilience, revealing how he managed to rally the world’s democracies behind his cause. Clear-eyed about the President’s early failures as a peacemaker and his willingness to silence political dissent, the book offers a complex picture of a man struggling to break what he sees as a historical cycle of oppression that began generations before he was born. Even as the war drags on, Zelensky lays out his vision for its future course and, through his actions, demonstrates his strategy for countering the Russians and keeping the West on his side. The result is a riveting, up-close picture of the invasion as experienced by its number one target and improbable hero. The Showman, as a work of eyewitness journalism, provides an essential perspective on the war defining our age. As a study in leadership and human resolve, its appeal is timeless and universal.
