    1. Manny

      With the News of the World dead and Sun journalists being arrested on a daily basis, it's easy to let one's schadenfreude get out of control and start predicting the newspaper's imminent demise. Except that we've (more or less) been here before. I read this book in 1991. The author's claims that the Currant Bun was in a passive vegetative state and would soon have its life support switched off turned out to be, alas, on the optimistic side.So he didn't get it completely right, but the book is st [...]

      I read this book 26 years after it was published because one of the authors, Chris Horrie, joined my 5-a-side football group in East Sheen! The book seems very well researched and is an interesting journey back through the Thatcher years. I am left with a bad taste in the mouth from the whole unsavoury spectacle of Rupert Murdoch's empire and small minded, right wing xenophobic, homophobic and immoral newspapers with the Sun leading the charge. The crossover between politics and the Murdoch pres [...]

      This is definitely no dry, boring boardroom bio! It tells the fascinating story of arguably Britain's most controversial newspaper, The Sun, from its beginnings in 1969 to the late 90s. The book is written in a style that reflects the sort of 'mockney' character assumed by Kelvin Mackenzie, and is a very entertaining and informative read. The description of British newspapers in the 1960s is particularly interesting, and as the story unfolds, especially during the Mackenzie regime, you get a fab [...]

      this is a really amazing overview of THE SUN newspaper in the post-Rupert Murdoch era. tells the story of maniac editor Kelvin MacKenzie, THE SUN's coverageof the Falkland's War, Murdoch's anti-union activities, etcdepressing stuff, but also pretty damn amusing. you'll hopefully never touch a Murdoch-owned paper again after reading. it's out-of-print and used copies are bizarrely expensive. gee, i sure hope there isn't a corporate media "conspiracy" to suppress this book.

      An excellent and damning history of the Sun newspaper, and by extension the United Kingdom from the late 60s to mid-90s. It's difficult to overstate the influence the Sun has had on British politics, and this book does a great job of describing the Sun's internal culture and explaining the ways that it has used and misused its power. One of the best things about the book is its gleeful tone, which makes the stories of stupidity and greed and thuggish mean-spiritedness seem even more disturbing.

    6. Robert Smith

      A fast-paced and entertaining account of the Britain's best-selling newspaper. The book largely concerns the raucous editorship of Kelvin Mackenzie in the 1980s, but starts with the story of how Rupert Murdoch and Larry Lamb grew the paper from the bottom upwards to daily sales of over four million.

    7. John Levon

      By now we're all familiar with the scurrilous behaviour of the Murdoch organisation, but this old book is still a rollicking read, and a great way of cementing your natural hatred of Mr Kelvin Mackenzie.
