Justin Trudeau: scion of political royalty, neglected son of difficult parents, actor, hot-tempered young delegate, selfie-king, and possibly the world’s most popular and telegenic leader. This thrilling book traces the remarkable rise of Justin Trudeau to become a desired and admired world leader in the grim age of Trump & Twitter. How did he do it? The secret is in his backstory. Alan Hustak has been granted unprecedented access from friends and relatives of both Pierre and the young Justin Trudeau. Exposing Trudeau’s childhood spent with a cerebral father, his experiences acting and teaching in Vancouver, and his eventual acceptance that his destiny lay in politics, Hustak weighs up the man against the objectified myth, and analyses the evidence for Trudeau’s sincerity, honesty and dedication to change. Is Trudeau truly the herald of a better kind of politics – or is this progressive agenda just a people pleasing mask?
