A dry, witty, occasionally cute look at Canadian politics in all its non-glory. As a Trudeau worshipper, I appreciate the author's love of the fact that Trudeau might have been the only Canadian politician with charm and personality...however, there's something sad about this book. It's obviously written pre-9/11, pre-George W. Bush, and pre-Stephen Harper. As a result, there's a nostalgic, elegiac quality to the entire effort that makes the reader rather wistful.
