An intimate portrait of Rhodes by one who knew him well, but very biased in his favor. Jourdan idolized Rhodes. He blames the Boers for the Boer war and demeans the black natives as "boys". "The native mind moves very slowly," he writes. "We were tired to death of the sight of them." He acknowledges that Rhodes was an imperialist, but thought that was a good thing. "We are all proud to call ourselves imperialists." The British Empire trumped all.

Jourdan knew Rhodes for only about seven years but, as his private secretary, gives unique insights into his life during that time. Interesting inside view of the siege of Kimberley. This book is not a biography of Rhodes, but a slice of his life.
