Daily Express owner Richard Desmond’s autobiography has received a rave review - from The Daily Express.
The founder of Northern and Shell, which also owns the Daily Star, OK! Magazine and new! magazine, received a glowing review in the Express for his book, The Real Deal.
Not much detail is offered as to why exactly The Real Deal, which is ghostwritten by Sunday Express editor Martin Townsend, deserves five stars but explains some of the content of the book.
Reviewer Virginia Blackburn does note: “[Desmond] displays a fine line in self-deprecating wit along the way.”
She also says she “enjoyed his insights into politicians”.
Several other noted the favourable review…
