Veteran Toronto Star political and economics journalist Les Whittington has seen it all, and then some. In his new book, Spinning History, Whittington chronicles—with remarkable clarity and a cop-like, straight-up tone—the hallmarks of Prime Minister Stephen Harper's government. It's a concise, well-written insider's guide on how the government has tried to change Canada over the last 10 years and it offers some suggestions for the future.
