Book Overview

John Crosbie became famous in Canada as a politician unlike the others, someone with a sharp tongue who has always spoken his mind. Now that he is out of politics, he has given us a book that will have many politicians and public figures running for cover-and many readers chuckling and cheering him on.

A solid read for those with an open mind.

John Crosbie has brought much needed light on the unfashionable truth of Conservative power in Canada. From his days as Newfoundland Liberal MPP to his cabinet positions under former Prime Ministers Joe Clark and Brian Mulroney, Crosbie describes the disturbing hypocrisies that are embedded in Canadian politics. He discusses a length the myth of Joey Smallwood, the duplicitous behaviour of Pierre Trudeau, the mean-spiritedness of a pro-Liberal media, and the orchestrated and groundless nature of the Airbus Scandal. He writes how easy it is to rise and fall in this country, depending on how the story is spun. "No Holds Barred" may not win any Liberal converts but it is absolutely essential if one is to know the Conservative point a view. Today's leaders may spoon feed an apathetic population with dogmatic ideas, but "No Holds Barred" manages to bring forward some welcomed facts to all those who dare call themselves educated.
