Présentation de l'éditeur

Lionel Logue was a self-taught and almost unknown Australian speech therapist. Yet it was this outgoing, amiable man who almost single-handedly turned the nervous, tongue-tied Duke of York into one of Britain's greatest kings after his brother, Edward VIII, abdicated in 1936 over his love for Mrs Simpson.

The King's Speech is the previously untold story of the remarkable relationship between Logue and the haunted future King George VI, written with Logue's grandson and drawing exclusively from his grandfather Lionel's diaries and archive.

This is an astonishing insight into the House of Windsor at the time of its greatest crisis. Never before has there been such a portrait of the British monarchy seen through the eyes of an Australian commoner who was proud to serve, and save, his King.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Quiet Determination And Heroism 24 novembre 2010
Par John D. Cofield - Publié sur Amazon.com
Published just before the opening of the movie of the same name, The King's Speech by Mark Logue and Peter Conradi is subtitled How One Man Saved The British Monarchy. That might seem on first glance to be typical publishing hyperbole, but after reading this fine biography most will agree that there's quite a bit of truth to it.

Lionel Logue was an Australian who moved to England during the 1920s. He was a pioneer in the teaching of elocution and as what we today call a speech therapist. His success brought him to the notice of the Royal Household, and he was soon requested to take on another patient: H.R.H. Prince Albert, Duke of York, second son of King George V.

Bertie, as the Royal Family called him, had a severe stammer that had begun during his spartan childhood and became worse as he grew up. Already outshown by his glamourous older brother the Prince of Wales, Bertie's speech difficulties caused him endless embarassment and hid his many fine qualities. Fortunately, Bertie had a wife who was determined to help her husband. Elizabeth, Duchess of York either introduced her husband to Logue or was otherwise instrumental in helping the two to connect. Over the next several years Logue met with his royal patient many times and eventually succeeded in helping the Duke gain more self confidence and speak more clearly.

Logue and Bertie's success came to be of national importance in December 1936 when King Edward VIII suddenly abdicated and left the throne to his younger brother. Now King George VI, Bertie was required to make many speeches both in person and over the air. He never completely mastered his stammer, but his improvement, fostered by Logue and by Queen Elizabeth, enabled him to speak fluently enough to satisfy all but the most severe critics. This was critical, because King George was to lead his nation and Empire through some of its darkest times of war and economic downturn.

Mark Logue is the grandson of Lionel Logue. This book is based in part on Lionel's diaries, and contains much new material on the King's speech problems and the therapies that alleviated them. It is very well written and illustrated and will be of interest to historians, those who deal with speech difficulties, and anyone who enjoys reading about determined, quietly heroic people.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting to see the differences between the book and the film (spoiler alert) 16 janvier 2011
Par Jenny Allworthy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Both the film and the book were wonderful. Having said that, the film is a wonderful story along with the kind of film crafting that will lift your heart. The book is very interesting and informative, but it is a non-fiction book, so you cannot expect the kind of entertainment that the film gives.
I thought it interesting that the filmmakers changed a few things (as they always do). Large things like (spoiler alert) that Bertie stopped his sessions with Logue because he was doing so well, not because they had a falling out. And small things like a joke between the brothers taken seriously in the movie makes one aware that Bertie and David were much closer to each other before the abdication, than the film would lead you to believe.
If you loved the film, but you would like the "real story" then you will love this book. And it really makes the relationship between Logue and Bertie seem even more amazing.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 "How one Man Saved the Monarchy"... 29 novembre 2010
Par Jill Meyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
In lieu of being able to watch the movie "The King's Speech" because it hasn't been released yet, I ordered the book by the same name, written by Lionel Logue's grandson, Mark Logue, and his co-author, Peter Conradi. The book is a well-written biography of Australian-born speech therapist Lionel Logue and his work with Britain's Prince Albert when he was Duke of York in the 1920's and continuing on in the 1930's when "Bertie" became King - George VI - in 1936, and then afterward during WW2.

Albert, son of King George V and younger brother of Edward VIII, had developed a stammer during his youth, which made him shy and uncommunicative. As someone who has struggled all my life with a relatively mild stutter, I thought it was good that Mark Logue did not attribute the cause of Bertie's stammer to any one thing. Stuttering is an impediment which seems to arise from both/either physical and psychological reasons and most of the time cannot be properly ascribed to any one thing. In Bertie's case, it was possibly from a difficult youth. He and his siblings were not close to their parents - as was common in those days - and his parents seemed to rather scare him when they were together. A sadistic nanny and the changing of his left-handedness to right may have contributed to his stutter. In any case, he was a man who could not always control his own speech, and he was moving into some situations where he would be called on to speak publicly and to do so often.

After his marriage, Bertie consulted Lionel Logue who had emigrated to England from Australia with his wife and young family and set up a practice in speech therapy in London's Harley Street. After much practice, Bertie was able to give speeches, but he depended on Lionel Logue's continued help as he became king - first in peacetime and then in wartime. The many speeches by radio that George was called on to make in the 25 or so years of his rule were always difficult for him, but Logue's work made them bearable to the king. Logue and George VI became friends - of a sort - because of their work together.

Mark Logue and Peter Conradi were able to look through Lionel Logue's case files and put together a very good record of Logue's work with George VI. Whether Lionel Logue "saved the monarchy" is a bit in doubt, but he did give confidence and success to the George VI when he - and the nation and the Commonwealth - needed it the most.

A note to the authors - Wallis Simpson was from an old Baltimore, Maryland family, not a Pennsylvania one.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Seen the movie? Now read the book 9 février 2011
Par Mark - Publié sur Amazon.com
I picked this book off a shelf while shopping at our local grocery store (sorry Amazon). After watching the movie (which is excellent) I wanted to know more about what really took place. I wasn't disappointed in that Mark Logue fills in many gaps that the film doesn't- as he should, having access to most of his grandfather's scrapbooks, letters and diaries. What I really liked about the book is that Logue and his co-writer keep as objective as they can and avoid the trap of making this a "what my grandfather did" type of book as it easily could have become- one forgets that the author is the grandson of the main character. Some drawbacks of the book are that it seems to have been rushed into print as there are several obvious "typos" that would have been eliminated with more time to make corrections to the manuscript. Another item that would have been nice is to bring out some more details of the actual treatment of the Duke/King- what Logue actually did to help him. We are treated to much of it in the movie, especially [SPOILER ALERT] the very humorous movie scene in which Logue has Bertie shout every cuss word he can come up with (how it got the "R" rating). I wanted to know if that really was one of Lionel's methods- but the book doesn't tell us. As some have said the book does slow down after the initial meetings of the two and once Bertie is coronated King George VI. However, in the author's defense, I'm not sure what else he could have done. It clearly wasn't meant to be a detailed biography of the King or even Logue himself, and perhaps it suffers some. My wife (who also read it) felt it got bogged down in history telling during the Second World War, but that too was probably unavoidable. All in all, however, I believe it is worth four stars and that you should read it if you want to know more about the REAL story- not the dramatized version in the movie.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Book --- Good Movie 5 mars 2011
Par Anne Salazar - Publié sur Amazon.com
I saw the movie before I knew there was a book; if I had known, I would have read the book first. But I really liked both and took no offense regarding the changes made in the film as I often do. The book, of course has a lot more detail and covers both men from birth to death. The film has taken liberties with the facts, as films almost always do. In "real life" Logue was a very sincere and respectful man, and very good looking. He was not at all "goofy" as he is portrayed in the movie. Considering the serious aspects of the situation these men find themselves in, the fact that each of them kept daily journals and wrote a lot of letters, all of which has been kept by Logue's family, makes it authentic and is a fascinating glimpse into the first half of the 20th century in Great Britain. Logue has written a very moving and fact-filled book.
