- No.2 Debut on the Amazon Bestsellers List -
TORONTO, Sept. 10 /CNW/ - The Rt. Hon Brian Mulroney's much-anticipated
Memoirs was released today with an immediate impact on the sales charts. After
weeks of building anticipation - capped by a series of politically-charged
excerpts and the airing of incredibly high-rated documentaries on the CTV and
TVA networks - Canadian readers today bought the book in huge numbers.
Already, Memoirs has appeared on the sales charts - including an impressive
debut at No.2 on the overall Amazon.ca Bestsellers List.
The book, which spans the years from 1939 to 1993, is a monumentally
honest look at the personal and political life of one of Canada's most
influential leaders. In the work, Mr. Mulroney talks frankly about the
momentous events that transpired during his tenure as prime minister and
offers great insight into both his triumphs and perceived failures. From the
glory of his back-to-back majority government victories; to his leading role
in the struggle to end South African apartheid; to the rise of separatist
forces; to the ultimate failure of the Meech Lake Accord - no controversial
subject is left unaddressed.
