From the time when he started work as a boiler maker in Gorton, Pollitt has played an active role in the Trade Union and Labour Movement, and he is known to thousands of people in every walk of life for his dynamic energy and unswerving courage. He writes as he speaks, forcefully and with humour, and this account of his life up to 1929, when he became Secretary of the Communist Party of Great Britain, is intersting, not only as political history, but as a revelation of an outstanding personality.".
