I thought it was nice book that let me have a glimpse of what others thought of Jack Layton. I was writing a paper on leadership and Jack was a great leader and did live by what he believed in

Definitely an incredibly sad moment when he died and didn't have a chance to continue on as leader of the NDP. It would have been interesting to see what would have happened in Canadian Politics if he was still alive.
