    TORONTO, Oct. 21 /CNW/ - McClelland & Stewart and Douglas Gibson Books
today announce Paul Martin's national tour to present his upcoming memoir Hell
or High Water - My Life In and Out of Politics.
    Paul Martin was the Prime Minister we never really knew - in this memoir
he emerges as a fascinating flesh and blood man, still working hard to make a
better world.
    Great events and world figures stud this book, which is firm but polite
as it sets the record straight, and is full of wry humour and self-deprecating
stories. Far from ending with his defeat in 2006, the book deals with his
continuing passions, such as the plight of Canada's aboriginal peoples and the
protection of the vital Congo Basin rainforest.
    The book also acknowledges Paul Martin as a visionary of G8 reform and a
leading mind of global financial architecture. In fact, the policies and
concepts he initiated in these areas continue to be acknowledged both as
necessary and ahead of their time.
    This is an idealistic, interesting book that reveals the Paul Martin we
never knew. It's a pleasure to meet him.
