“Excellent biography . . . In this evenhanded, judicious and authoritative work, McKillop does justice to the colossus.”
— Ken McGoogan, Globe and Mail

“McKillop’s book is, like the best of Berton himself, compellingly readable. It is a biography, doubtless definitive, which readers interested in Berton, his distinguished career and in Canada’s history, will want to keep on their shelves.”
London Free Press

“Magnificent biography.”
Winnipeg Free Press

“Reading it is like taking a long, but leisurely train trip through the 20th century.”
— Kitchener-Waterloo Record

“McKillop never loses sympathy with Berton, but he recounts the failings as well as the virtues of his subject, his occasional outbursts of petulance as well as his unfailing generosity.”
National Post
