Finally, after over 30 years of hagiographies, comes a book that sets the record straight and tells us the truth about Pierre Elliott Trudeau.<_o3a_p>


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. <_o3a_p>

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Book on Trudeau to date! If you like history, and prefer to have it accurate, you must read this book. It should be required reading for every Canadian. For decades Trudeau's former cronies have misled Canadians on the 'virtues' and international statesmanship of Mr. Trudeau. The research presented by Mr. Plamondon will cause the reader to re-examine their views on the man and his value to Canada. Mr. Trudeau should now go down as one of the worst PMs ever and, it is essential that future generations are not lied to as we were. Great work!

Editorial Reviews

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.”
