From the Publisher
Finally, after over 30 years of hagiographies, comes a book that sets the record straight and tells us the truth about Pierre Elliott Trudeau. In this unprecedented and meticulously researched sweep of the record, Globe and Mail bestselling author Bob Plamondon challenges the conventional wisdom that Trudeau was a great prime minister. With new revelations, fresh insights, and in-depth analysis, Plamondon reveals that the man did not measure up to the myth. While no one disputes Trudeau’s intelligence, toughness, charisma, and the flashes of glamour he brought Canada, in the end the pirouettes were not worth the price.

David Frum : “Finally. No more apologetics, no more myth-making. Here's the real Trudeau and the real record, carefully researched and masterfully told. It's a story that Canada must never forget and never excuse.” Lawrence Martin : “Plamondon has gone boldly where no Trudeau biographer has gone before. This is not a quickie hatchet job, but a well-reasoned critique.” Derek Burney : “Dissecting reality from mythology, Plamondon provides a compelling assessment of Canada's 15th Prime Minister, one that contrasts sharply with the hagiographies on record.”
