Description

He’s outspoken. He rants. His politics drive some people wild. You’ve been hearing him on the radio for years -- of course you're familiar with John Gormley!... But do you really know him? Reading The Gormley Papers: I'm Right and you Know It, you may be surprised to discover that the radio personality you love – or love to hate – isn’t as black and white as you think he is. Sometimes, he doesn’t even discuss politics at all. Gormley’s follow-up book to his Canadian bestseller Left Out is a compilation of various perspectives and opinions based on his Post Media columns from the last decade, with personalized margin notes, mini rants, and a few I-told-you-sos. Touching on the major events that have shaped the public consciousness and the milestones that make a life worth living, this collection of thoughts goes beyond the politics of right and wrong left. And there’s no doubt where he stands. Gormley discusses the events that take us from the changed world of 9-11 to the culture of protest, juggling modern life between family and technology, aging not so gracefully and the landscapes - personal and political - that fall in between. With a blend of humour and gravity, Gormley examines the first decade of our new century and contemplates where we are headed. And if you aren’t sure he’s right, well then - you’ll have to agree to disagree.

Editorial Reviews

John Gormley is one of this country’s most effective and engaging communicators. I feel fortunate to be able to call him my fellow Canadian broadcaster; his words are must reading.

— Charles Adler

Whether you agree or disagree with John Gormley, he causes one to think, to question, to smile or to rage, but he is always interesting. This collection of Gormley's columns will stimulate you to think about some of the more controversial but important issues facing us today.

— PhD, Historian, & recipient of the Saskatchewan Order of Merit
