Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

Just going through this great book for the third time looking for some thing that would even slightly change my mind on how I see this man and as usual could find little or nothing that would change my mind on what I perceive to be Canada's first autocratic PM.Doesn't bode well in my humble opinion for Canadian democracy.Now having read any number of books on the subject I find my original opinion has not changed one iota.Jon

Format: Paperback
Irrespective of whether you agree with Harper's social-conservative stance or not, this book demonstrates Harper's complete lack of regard for the Canadian public and the democratic process. When his closest advisers discuss how paranoid and vindictive he is and how he's surrounding himself with like-minded people in the PMO/PCO, it's very upsetting. I felt sick for most of this book. Sick and frightened for Canada.

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...
