My Unique Relationship with Robert Maxwell: The Truth at Last

This book is an intriguing viewpoint into the private life of Robert Maxwell and his relationship with the daughter of Lord Hartwell, Eleanor Berry. The book plots their relationship during his life up until the time of his death. Robert Maxwell was a British media proprietor and MP. He rose from poverty to build a publishing empire. He bought the Mirror Group newspapers and Macmillan Publishers, among others. He died in 1991. It was Eleanor’s late brother, Nicky, who introduced her to Bob in the late 60s. Nicky was the Financial Correspondent on The Daily Telegraph and had worked with Bob so they had become friends. Nicky was invited to a birthday party at Robert Maxwell’s Oxford house, Headington Hall and Eleanor went along with him. After a night of chatting and dancing, Eleanor spent lots of time with Robert and his wife, Betty, over the years.

"The gutter press have only informed us about Maxwell’s faults but Eleanor is proud to have been his friend. Here we see the benevolent, unknown side of Robert Maxwell."
