Being Prime Minister takes you behind the scenes to tell the story of Canada's leaders and the job they do as it has never been told before. From John A. Macdonald to Justin Trudeau, readers get a glimpse of the prime ministers as they travelled, dealt with invasions of privacy, met with celebrities, and managed the stress of the nation's top job. An intimate history of the journalists who covered Canadian history, and made some of their own.

It is not so different with the parliamentary prime minister appointment in the United Kingdom. The prime minister is the representative of what parliament wants.
