Jean Chr?tien won the hearts of Canadians with his unabashed love of his country, his unwavering commitment to federalism, and his abiding faith in the people.

In this reissue of his remarkable best-selling memoir, Chr?tien recalls in colourful and fascinating detail his beginnings as a populist lawyer from Shawinigan, his rise as an MP and cabinet minister, and, ultimately, his election as Prime Minister of Canada.

Straight from the Heart is an entertaining, insightful first-person account of Chr?tien`s early days organizing for the Liberals in rural Quebec, how a young French-speaking MP learned the ropes in an English-dominated capital, his pride at becoming Canada?s first French-Canadian Prime Minister of Finance, and the dramatic battles he fought side by side with Pierre Trudeau to win the 1980 Quebec referendum and patriate the Constitution with the Charter of Rights. It includes behind-the-scenes descriptions of his two leadership bids and the election campaign that led to a majority Liberal government in 1993.

This classic memoir is essential reading for anyone seeking an understanding of one of the most successful, skillful, and popular political leaders of our times.

Praise for Straight from the Heart:

?Highly recommendable?What Chr?tien?s autobiography offers is a vision of one man?s considerable passion. Its sight line is clear, textured, and indisputably colourful.? ? Maclean?s

?Exuberant, slangy, light-hearted optimistic, and decent-minded.?? Winnipeg Free Press
