Thought the book may be slow and difficult to read but found it totally entertaining. Really explains the mind set of the Conservative party presently in power.

audiobook review Dec 19 2012
By Jonathan Esterman - Published on Amazon.com
This book is about the politics of control. Harper, the Prime Minister of Canada (at least in August 2010, when this book was written), paved his political path as a force to be reckoned with. His authoritarian methods were under much scrutiny by the press, but that isn't what this book is about. This book is to look at the four-year period in an honest, and seemingly academic, nature. This book, while covering controversial material, is more a story of 2006 to 2010.

Puttonen's narration is astounding. There were literal moments in his hart where he sighed as one could imagine a speaker doing at that point. His inflection superb, the only downside would be the dreariness to his voice, which isn't so much a fault of the narrator but an intended outcome. Speaking at a medium pace, this audiobook seems more like a recorded commentary or author rendition than it does third-party work. Love politics? You'll love the title. Love audiobooks? This one is right up your alley, then...

Every Canadian should read this! Jan. 21 2013
By Norlaine Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Lawrence Martin gives a clear and often behind-the-scenes perspective on Harper and where his policies and ideology are coming from. Every Canadian should read this. It is our duty as citizens to be informed about what is happening in our country, even (or perhaps especially) when the governement is intentionally trying to control all the messages that go to the public.
