Paul Wells

Jury Statement:

This no-holds barred romp into the inner sanctum of the “Harper government” is sometimes hilariously irreverent, but always astute and based on meticulously accumulated details. Paul Wells provides disturbing insights into this government’s determination to stay in power, its good fortune in the face of possible adversity, its mistakes and its battle to control information. This is a well-written, important book published at a timely juncture in Canada’s political history.
