Product description


“Full of wit, an astute insider’s insights, and candour.” - Toronto Star

“An exhilarating inside look ride through decades of Canadian politics and history…. His anecdotes are amazing…. Oliver’s Twist is superb stuff, proving again that a word is worth 1,000 TV clips.” - Winnipeg Free Press

“A storehouse of insights, anecdotes, and eye-popping close-ups that makes for a strappingly good book.” - Lawrence Martin, author of Harperland

“Having covered and worked closely with Canadian leaders over the past half-century, [Oliver] is able to give a candid and insightful assessment of leading political figures…. This book details the Craig Oliver we all know; someone not afraid to take on tough issues, but who does so in the most genuinely respectful fashion—a true gentleman and a great Canadian. Oliver’s Twist is an enjoyable read, one I highly recommend.” - John Baird (Minister of Foreign Affairs), The Globe and Mail

“A book at once human and sharp…. It is Ottawa that stars here, and Oliver brims with insight into its’ great figures…. [Oliver] injects emotion into his taut, lively prose. He also generates laughs.” - Maclean’s

“Every young reporter should be inspired by Craig Oliver's book, Oliver’s Twist.” - Jim Munson (Liberal senator), The Montreal Gazette

“A fascinating chronicle of a life that moved from the hard streets of 1940s Prince Rupert to a place near the top of the CTV News totem pole. Oliver … pulls few punches.” - Canadian Press
