Trotsky was Blair's inspiration
Tony Blair has revealed that Trotsky was the inspiration for his entry to politics.
Tony Blair has cited Trotsky and Flat Stanley as his top reads
Launching World Book Day the Prime Minister cited his two top reads, a biography of Trotsky and the children's book Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown, a favourite of Mr Blair's five-year-old son, Leo.
But the rather more heavyweight Trotsky trilogy by Isaac Deutscher is the book which has meant most to him, inspiring him to pursue his career in politics.
At the launch in London's Commonwealth Club Mr Blair said:"I might as well make a confession now."
"There were people who got me very involved in politics. But then there was also a book.
"It was a trilogy, a biography of Trotsky by Isaac Deutscher which made a very deep impression on me and gave me a love of political biography for the rest of my life.
"My association with books has continued through the rest of my adult life, but particularly with my children."
For the first time, this year's World Book Day is being extended to adult readers.
