The book is not about Danny Williams. I was curious about the ex-premier of NL. It's mostly about the author's years in Ottawa and gives insight on the inner workings of federal-provincial government dynamics.

This book lives up to its cover - it does indeed present a high level inside view of Ottawa under Paul Martin. The negative views of Ottawa civil servants are hilarious. Martin as PM comes across as weak as he was, but if this book had been written in French, I doubt that Quebec voters would have treated Jean Charest the way they did - Rowe is full of admiration and jealousy over his achievements in Ottawa for his province. Lots of details but a fun read too.
