About the Author

John English, a former professor of history at the University of Waterloo and former MP, is the author of the acclaimed two-volume bestselling biography of Lester Pearson, The Worldly Years: The Life of Lester Pearson, Vol. 1, and Shadow of Heaven: The Life of Lester B. Pearson Vol. 2, along with a 2-volume biography of Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Citizen of the World, and Just Watch Me, both national bestsellers, as well as several other books on Canadian politics.


"A sensitive, thoughtful and beautifully written biography of one of Canada's most intriguing figures by a leading Canadian historian. This first instalment shows that if anyone can unpick the puzzle of Pierre Trudeau and help us to understand both his many-faceted personality and his impact on his times, it is surely John English."
-Dr. Margaret MacMillan, author of Paris 1919

"Citizen of the World is more than just another volume on an already overcrowded shelf. It offers
the most intimate look at the most dominant of Canadian political figures in modern times."
-The Gazette (Montreal) "The most illuminating Trudeau portrait yet written. . . . John English was given full access to the gold mine-all of Mr. Trudeau's diaries, letters and papers. It is from that kind of entr e that truths emerge. The Trudeau story is more wondrous than imagined."
-The Globe and Mail "English's work is very readable, balanced in judgment and of course deeply informed. . . . Trudeau's energy, passion, ambition, wit and intellectuality leap off the page, leaving this reader once again with a sense of the extraordinary nature of his life and character."
-Winnipeg Free Press "[A] magisterial biography drawing on many previously unpublished letters and diaries."
-National Post Praise for The Worldly Years: The Life of Lester Pearson "A magnificent biography."
The Globe and Mail "John English captures all Pearson's accomplishments in wonderful, readable detail. . . . Pure pleasure and pure insight."
-Calgary Herald "Outstanding."
-Ottawa Citizen "A multi-dimensional portrait that rings true from beginning to end. A pleasure to read."
-The Gazette (Montreal)
