Warren Kinsella was a special assistant to Jean Chretien and was chief of staff in several federal ministries. His previous books include Unholy Alliances; the national bestseller Web of Hate; a bestselling novel, Party Favours; Kicking Ass in Canadian Politics; and Fury's Hour: A (Sort-of) Punk Manifesto. He lives in Toronto.
His book is a must-read for political junkies. I suspect the people who need to read it most are John Tory and his entire campaign team.-- Christina Blizzard * 11/12/2007 *
There's a lot of good hard information here... Kinsella has crafted a handy little guide for politicos and non-politicos alike.-- Douglas J. Johnston * Winnipeg Free Press *
Warren Kinsella's new book ... is a must-read for anyone interested in political campaigning in Canada ...Warren is a wordsmith, so The War Room is an easy, breezy read ... I wish I'd had the chance to read The War Room before I became Stephen Harper's campaign manager; it might have saved me from many mistakes and months of painful learning on the job.-- Tom Flanagan
