If you're looking for statesmen today, take a look at David Johnston, the former Governor-General of Canada. In his third book he shares a few lessons from his own life, shining as a humble servant to his country, for building trust. Whether you're on a small team, a corporate leader, or entrusted with maintaining the civic life of a nation, this manual has lessons for you.

Such a lucid, wise and inspiring book! Already proud to be a Canadian, I found this book to be both affirming and challenging, as our former Governor General lays out his belief in the importance of building and and maintaining trust as the keystone of what makes Canada great -- still. Excellent.

Great book for leaders to read. David Johnston was beloved as our Governor General, and you can see why as he lays out many of the lessons he has learnt over the years, in how to manage, treat people, and lead in a society that is increasingly cynical.

Great insight from a statesman who has a wealth of experience and a breadth of knowledge. I grew in appreciation of who David Johnston is, the important role the governor general plays and most importantly the role each of us can play in becoming trustworthy for the sake of improving Canada.
