The King's Speech
Albert, Duke of York began to see speech therapist Lionel Logue in a desperate bid to cure his lifelong stammer. Little did the two men know that this unlikely friendship would ultimately save the House of Windsor from collapse. The amiable Logue gave the shy young Duke the skills and the confidence to stand and deliver before a crowd. And when his elder brother, Edward VIII, abdicated the throne to marry for love, 'Bertie' was able to assume the reins of power as King George VI.

Fantastic work on the life and speech therapy work of Lionel Logue and his work with King George prior to and during the Second World War.

Very interesting read. A bit dry at times, but filled with facts not only about the monarchy, but about speech therapy. Lots to learn from this book.
