Product Details

Product Description


There is much in this biography that I witnessed personally - from John Turner's friendship with my father to his very successful tenure as finance minister; from his leadership of the Liberal Party to his integrity, his belief in the political process, and his love of country. There is also much that I viewed only from afar. The insights to be gained from reading this book will be important to anyone interested in the events and debates that signposted the evolution of postwar Canada. John Turners' is a life well worth knowing and this fascinating book is well worth reading. - The Right Honourable Paul Martin

Book Description
