Review

This is a basic primer on constituency-level campaigning in Canada. The
book provides good common-sense advice in an easily readable format with
plenty of familiar anecdotes. Although Brook has worked on many NDP
campaigns, his advice is of a general nature and is thus applicable to
the campaigns of any party. Overall, this book will be particularly
useful for those entering or thinking of entering politics for the first
time. It does not, however, provide a detailed analysis of elections or
campaigning. Nor does it provide much “insider” information about
particular elections, parties, or personalities.
