Reviews

"The Stewarts have done an extraordinary job in their new biography. They travelled to many of the places where Bethune lived and worked, talked to old Party members who remembered him, and assimilated much new material into their narrative. The book is beautifully written, with a clear narrative. Providing excellent background information on the times, they keep Bethune in the foreground and make him a much more complex, exasperating, and admirable man than the pottery statue of Chinese propaganda." The Tyee "Phoenix makes a compelling read. Phoenix is both readable and authoritative. It dispels many of the myths which have grown around Bethune, and presents him warts and all. The book will be a valuable contribution to history's view of Bethune." Spectrum "Thorough, objective, well-written, exhaustive and highly readable, Phoenix should become the definitive basis for all serious discussion of Bethune." The Globe and Mail "Phoenix makes a compelling read. Phoenix is both readable and authoritative. It dispels many of the myths which have grown around Bethune, and presents him warts and all. The book will be a valuable contribution to history's view of Bethune." Surgeon's News, Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh "I have no doubt that Phoenix is the ultimate last word on Norman Bethune, warts and all. The twin authors render his life in minute detail. This is an outstanding biography of a man who should be better known in the town where he once played basketball for his local high school. The hero of millions, Norman Bethune once walked the streets of Owen Sound." Andrew Armitage, The Sun Times "Masterful biography (...) engaging-at times, enthralling-page turner."
