This is the full story of the remarkable relationship between Lionel Logue, an Australian speech-therapist and the future King George VI, who suffered from a stammer and was berated by his father for his nervous and tongue-tied speeches. Drawing exclusively on Lionel's diaries and archive, it throws an extraordinary light on the intimacy of the two men, despite their differences. Never before has there been such a personal portrait of the British monarchy.
