This review is from: The Life: The Seductive Call of Politics (Hardcover)
While Paikin focuses too much on provincial politicians for my liking and his writing style can, at times, be frustrating, I found myself both amused and somewhat enlightened by this book. During the book I was constantly trying to pinpoint any trace of a bias that I could find (as I do with all books), and in some chapters I'd think he definitely had an NDP bias only to reverse my hypothesis to a Tory bias the very next chapter. So needless to say, I found him fair, interesting, and a breath of fresh air in this world where far too many people have lost sight of the fact that, although there is and has always been crooked MPs in the House of Commons, there are indeed a select group who do what they do because they truly believe in their cause.
