When Pierre Elliott Trudeau died in 2000, the outpouring of emotion
was extraordinary. Thousands of people across Canada -- and all
over the world -- mourned the loss of one of our greatest prime

has put together a remarkably transparent account of a deeply
private person that is funny, honest, affectionate, and
