I* didn't really need this book to tell me what kind of a rascal Harper is, but it was definitely a good read nonetheless.

I found this a little hard to get into a first but I am very glad I stuck with it. The connection to Leo Strauss was a key for me, as was Harper's embrace of Hobbes Leviathan. Well worth a read.

It was published before Harper got the majority government, which gives it an interesting perspective.

Google the words Harper Bush Strauss and you'll get more on the connection. Very scary stuff.

The problem with this kind of book is that it's often a case of he/she said/he/she said but there's probably ample evidence that Harper is a crook.

Those who should read this book, won't as the title will certainly warn them of what it contains; those who don't need to, might and will learn nothing they didn't already know; whoever does or doesn't read it, nothing useful will be achieved as a result - other than improving the writer's, translator's and publisher's bank balances.

Nothing more or less than preaching to the converted.
