2 of 2 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on July 6 2010
Format: Hardcover
This book is even more amazing read now than it was in 2003, when it was published.

It was the first serious biography of a man so many in his own party refused to take seriously.

Meanwhile, he won three election victories for the Canadian Liberals, and was never defeated, a feat unsurpassed by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, W. L. Mackenzie King, or Trudeau.

This book shows why the scrapper from Shawinigan connected so deeply with ordinary Canadians.

And read now, when Jean Chretien's successors have been undewhelming the electorate, the outsider that many in his party refused to take seriously, is now being implored by some to make a comeback.

If you didn't take Jean Chretien seriously before reading this biography, you will afterwards.

Volume 2 of Lawrence Martin's Chretien Biography July 6 2012
By Richard Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I discovered the writings of Lawrence Martin after reading a copy of his book Harperland about Stephen Harper. I very much enjoyed the quality of the writing, the depth of the analysis and the insights into Harper and his regime. As he is clearly unimpressed by a Canadian Conservative leader, I was curious about how he had treated a Canadian Liberal one, hence my reading of the first of his volumes on Jean Chretien, and now this second one. Again, I have been just as impressed by the writing quality and insights as I was with Harperland. I am currently reading his earlier book "Pledge of Allegiance" on the rule of Brian Mulroney and his government, which preceded Chretien's Prime Ministership. I expect to read all of Martin's books in short order - I cannot recommend this author highly enough.
