WORLD LEADERS
1. The Downing Street Years: Margaret Thatcher, 1993.  Her dates are 1925-2013, and here are more of her booksThanks to Robert Wenzel for this book recommendation and this video of Thatcher telling a stupid BBC reporter with an inane request to jump up and down “like everybody else.”  I liked Thatcher’s comment at the end, “I do not wish to lose the respect of people whose respect I’ve kept for years by doing something so foolish.”
