Ian Templeton reviews Fridays with Jim


'In exploring the life and times of Bolger through his conversations over the best part of a year, Cohen ranges widely. Besides its political content, and its reflections on leadership, his fine book journeys into Bolger’s past, his family origins in Ireland, the strength he drew from his upbringing in Taranaki, and his fervent Catholicism. This, together with the extended speeches he delivered in places as far apart as Mumbai and Georgetown University in Washington, gives the book real depth.' — Ian Templeton, Newsroom.
