Product Details


“Nino Ricci, who, with a novelist’s flair for the theatrical, has reanimated Trudeau in his entry in Penguin Canada’s compact biographies of extraordinary Canadians…. Absorbing and thoughtful evaluations…. Compelling.” – The Globe and Mail

“The narrative is thoroughly researched. While Ricci presents few stories, details, or theories about Trudeau’s legacy that haven’t been told elsewhere, he provides a surprisingly comprehensive biography in perhaps the shortest number of pages ever devoted to a Trudeau book. Ricci’s signature style is evident, and his own insights peppered throughout the text are enjoyable. Personal, human, and generous.” – Canada’s History magazine

“The authors [of the Extraordinary Canadians series] are well chosen; Nino Ricci … does terrific justice to Pierre Trudeau.” – Calgary Herald

“A balanced and subtle account of [a] complex and very private man…. Even if you have read Stephen Clarkson and Christina McCall or John English’s superb Trudeau biographies, far more substantial and detailed, you will want to read this elegant little book. It provides the best, and best written, perspective on the man there is.” – Guelph Mercury

“Charming and readable…. Ricci does an excellent job explaining the sources of the Trudeau myth and, in doing so, makes Trudeau the man more human.” – The Canadian Encyclopedia Blog
