Editorial Reviews

"John English captures all Pearson's accomplishments in wonderful readable detail.  This unassuming man had the idea for the United Nations peacekeeping force, won the Nobel Peace Prize and dared to take a line internationally that didn't parrot, and sometimes angered, the Americans.  No Canadian since has approached Pearson's accomplishments in foreign affairs... The Worldly Years is pure pleasure and pure insight." --Calgary Herald"What is fascinating is the way in which English gives you the impression that he is breathing in your ear all these new secrets...The result is a thorough examination of the man, with keen and surprising insights." --Windsor Star"An outstanding biography.  The Worldly Years should be at the top of any list of Canadian biographies." --H. Blair Neatby, Ottawa Citizen
