Rated 5 out of 5 by from An ecletic handbook on Trudeau I am not an adoring fan of Pierre Trudeau but this book is superb. Its divergent collection of authors clearly and eloquently describe all facets of Pierre Trudeau's public life from 1968 on, except his shocking marriage to Margaret Sinclair. The authors rely on few quotes and the chapters on trade and the economy have few numbers as the book is not a dry political science textbook. For someone like myself too young to remember Trudeau's retirement in 1984 it helped me understand his life and times right before he passed away.
