Danny Williams: A Profile examines the seven-year political career of former Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams. With photos by renowned photojournalist Paul Daly and evocative text by long-time political columnist Russell Wangersky, the book captures the nature and style of one of the country's most popular political figures. His career included everything from battles of words with other premiers and with prime ministers to conversations with constituents who felt they could call him "Danny." Consistently carrying the support of more than 70 per cent of his province's decided voters, Premier Danny Williams retired suddenly in 2010 at the top of his game. Sometimes irascible, and other times self-deprecating and charming, the charismatic Williams left a huge mark, especially for a premier of a small-population province. Occasionally seeming like an ardent Newfoundland and Labrador nationalist, other times professing a great love for the nation of Canada, he battled his way to major successes and left office when he said he felt there were no significant fights left to wage. With photographs that skillfully capture a more personal side of the man than is usually revealed, the book seeks to be a small window on Danny Williams, particularly for people who wonder both what he has done for the province and what he is truly like.

Editorial Reviews

"Photographer Paul Daly has earned a deserved reputation for his exceptional eye for environmental portraiture. [...] Wangersky's journalistic summary strikes just the right tone. The narrative doesn't fawn over its subject and nor does it involve serious analysis. It offers a good synopsis of the public life of Williams during the decade that he was a party leader."
