Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

More than 20 years after her death, Princess Diana remains a mystery. Was she "'the people's princess', who electrified the world with her beauty and humanitarian missions? Or was she a manipulative, media-savvy neurotic who nearly brought down the monarchy?

The Diana Chronicles parts the curtains on Diana's troubled time in the mysterious world of the Windsors, as she breaks out of her royal cage into celebrity culture, where she found her own power and used it to devastating effect. 

Knowing Diana personally, Tina Brown understands her world, understands its players and has reaching insight into the royals and the queen herself. Meet the formidable female cast and get to know the society they inhabit, as you never have before.

Phenomenonly Thorough

I don't believe there would be a more detailed, complete and comprehensive outline of the life of Lady Diana than this title. Tina Brown has the advantage of being English, former editor of Tatler and Vanity Fair and having been married to the editor of the UK Sunday Times. She must know everyone. Absolutely everything about the life of Diana comes together here. This is as much a history book as it is a biography. I was thoroughly intrigued and captivated. Don't miss reading this. And then perhaps buy yourself a copy for your library shelf.

Great

Beautifully narrated and super well written book. I believe Tins has great insight and balance into the story of Diana and Charles. Its sad the world did not benefit longer from Diana’s love.

An exercise in circumlocution.

I gave up with this book after two chapters. Anyone who had never heard of Diana, Princess of Wales and looking for a simple outline description of the person to start with would be none the wiser after reading this heavy and unnecessary use of multiple words that at the end conveyed nothing other than the author’s love of words.

A very detailed and balanced biography of Diana.

The author captures Diana's shadow side and her great humanity in an unvarnished retelling of her life.
