As Jean Chraetien's right-hand man for thirty years in Ministries all over Ottawa, Eddie Goldenberg got to know how things worked in politics - especially from 1993 to 2003, when he was Senior Policy Advisor to the Prime Minister.

Part political science textbook, part memoir, Goldenberg's work is a sometimes brutally honest look at the way the federal government really operates. 2006

This music myth-debunking volume is organized by subjects such as song lyrics, deaths, and the origins of album and song titles.
