The former First Minister of Wales's candid and timely autobiography
For nine years, Carwyn Jones was at the helm of Welsh politics. As First Minster from 2009 to 2018, he led the Welsh Government through turmoil, tensions and success. Now for the first time, he sharesthe story of his political journey and the behind-the-scenes drama: from battles with Westminster and his relationships with Cameron, May and Corbyn, to the Brexit vote and his thoughts on the status of Wales as a nation. Jones also gives his response to the tragic circumstances surrounding Carl Sargeant's departure from Cabinet and suicide, and talks frankly about his wife's cancer diagnosis and treatment. Revealing the man as well as the minister, Jones speaks of his roots in one small corner of Wales and childhood brought up as a Welsh speaker in Bridgend, and about a life lived in and out of the public eye, a life that's not just politics.
