critical praise for trudeaumania (2016)

“A fascinating and well-constructed narrative.” — Maclean's

“Fascinating.  More than any other, this aspect of Trudeau’s story requires a historical passport, and Wright provides one.” — The Globe and Mail

“Trudeaumania is a rare type of accessible intellectual history.  Wright has struck an excellent balance between his own analysis, quotes from contemporary journalists, and letting Trudeau’s words (and the man is endlessly quotable) speak for themselves.” — Quill & Quire

“An absolutely incredible book — Wright’s best by a wide margin.  It’s gripping as hell, with a ton of energy and momentum.” — Andrew Potter, Director, McGill Institute for the Study of Canada
