On October 8, 2013, Nova Scotia's NDP government went down to a devastating election defeat. Premier Darrell Dexter lost his own seat, and the party held the dubious distinction of being the first one-term majority government in over 100 years.

In this new memoir, former NDP finance minister and MLA Graham Steele tries to make sense of the election result and shares what he's learned from a fifteen-year career in provincial politics. In his trademark candid style, Steele pulls no punches in assessing what's right--and what's often wrong--with our current political system. Includes an insert of colour photographs and a foreword from CBC Information Morning host Don Connolly.

Definitely a must-read. The author's candid account of his time in politics is refreshing.
It will make for an enjoyable summer reading.
Do yourself a favour and select "HOLD."
Then, once you read it, take note of the "Rules of the Game."
