Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of paper. How many trees were killed to publish this waste of paper and ink?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Canadians should read I just finished reading Justin Trudeau's "Common Ground" & would recommend that ALL Canadians read it, no matter what political stripe. Not only is it an engaging, poignant, sometimes funny, always interesting & well written read, but it gives a window into what Justin's philosophies of life, politics, family are & how they were formed. It gave me valuable insight into what a future PM of Canada believes in & what I saw was extremely encouraging. It certainly convinced me that he is more than ready for "prime time" & that the politics of division currently practiced is not in his DNA. I highly recommend this book. Very enlightening.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Written for all of us I bought this book because, as the granddaughter of a political figure, I was interested in seeing how Justin Trudeau responded to the pressures of being part of a political family. I also wanted a base by which I can see how he handles the campaigning of the Harper government. I liked the book and felt it was not patronizing nor "over our heads". Thank you for writing it Justin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very enjoyable! I was surprised by how engaging this book was. Many things impressed me about Justin Trudeau. He's very goal-oriented, a team player, genuinely likes engaging people in discussions about the country he loves, and works extremely hard. In that respect it could be a manual for "How To Be Successful At Whatever You Do". It's also a good insight into the principles and beliefs that underscore his vision for the country. Highly recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good read Pro: Interesting account of a fascinating childhood and an interesting adulthood. Some very fun stories and interesting anecdotes. Extremely well edited and written. Con: Because it's written as he nears his first election as leader, by nature, it's a story half told. A few of the segues into campaign rhetoric (especially the first one re: the Charter/his youth) are clunky and off-putting. Would recommend for fans of Trudeau and PET,

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Amazing It's the amazing story of how a young man grew up in a rich celebrity family and worked against all odds to become rich celebrity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save the attack ads for the election Enough is enough. Given that the book hasn't been released yet - and won't be until Monday ? perhaps "Page" should actually read Trudeau's book before reviewing it. The Conservatives have a long history of taking quotes out of context and spinning them to cast things in a negative light. As a Canadian, I've had enough of that. And I'm not the only one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shows how arrogant JT really is. Justin writes, "I felt a little embarrassed by the encounter. This student was the child of immigrants, part of the wave of newcomers who had come to this country and made a success of themselves thanks in part to the open-minded policies my father had introduced as prime minister. Now, he had been treated like some anonymous bystander." What does Justin Trudeau expect, that every immigrant should be thanking his father for what he did for them. This comment just shows how arrogant he is. Also, I wonder if Justin actually knew that student was the child of newcomers. He probably his saw his/her skin colour and just assumed that and therefore expected praise for his father.
