M Daly, February 11, 2014 (view all comments by M Daly)
George VI of England was handicapped with a terrible stutter, not a good thing for a public figure. Enter Lionel Logue, an elocution specialist, today a speech therapist. He was the first to recognize that stuttering is a physical ailment, and not merely a mental defect. With a series of practices, speech revisions, and exercises, he was able to correct George's stutter. The title is a bit misleading, as Logue came into George's life long before he had any idea of becoming king. The book is a biography of Logue, and his long-time relationship with Bertie.

Yes I am an Anglophile, but I really did enjoy reading this book. It was not a dry stuffy book as some biographies tend to be, but a fast read. It was very interesting finding out more about the person who helped the King with his stutter.

Great read, gives a perspective of major historical events in England from a "front row" by Mr. Logue, a commoner who had an unusually intimate connection with the Royal Family over several decades.
