Only 11 left in stock (more on the way). Having lived in Montreal during the time when Margaret Sinclair married then Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau; her book brought back many memories of her public life when she was such a young bride and mother. I found her book to be very engaging, well written and hard to put down. Kudos to Margaret Trudeau for helping raise much more awareness and knowledge about brain illnesses, especially her condition, by revealing so much about herself and her journey to a place of wellness.

Changing My Mind book. In a love story that shocked the world, Margaret Trudeau became the youngest First Lady when at age 22 she married Pierre Trudeau, a man almost thirty years her senior and the 15th Prime Minister of Canada.

Changing My Mind follows Margaret Trudeau's stormy passage from ingénue to depressive and beyond, and the stations in between. It is the chronicle of a life of hurt softened by interludes of happiness. While much of the tale is achingly sad, shaded by mental illness, it is affecting and uplifting. Now, at 61, a grandmother of five, she is a figure in repose - single, sane, content and chatty. If much sounds familiar, it is, though this memoir is written (or perhaps ghostwritten) with economy and sincerity.

In this deeply moving memoir, Margaret Trudeau speaks with candour and insight about the illness that silently shaped her life a life lived often in turbulence and in the public's fascination. Plagued since childhood by extreme moods, Margaret was ill-prepared for the high-profile role into which she was cast at age twenty-two, as Canada's youngest first lady. Captivated by her high spirits, youth and beauty, Canadians fell in love with Margaret, just as they had with her charismatic husband, Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, three years earlier.

In this deeply moving memoir, Margaret Trudeau speaks with candour and insight about the illness that silently shaped her life -- a life lived often in turbulence and in the public’s fascination. Plagued since childhood by extreme moods, Margaret was ill-prepared for the high-profile role into which she was cast at age twenty-two, as Canada’s youngest first lady. Captivated by her high spirits, youth and beauty, Canadians fell in love with Margaret, just as they had with her charismatic husband, Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, three years earlier. When their first son, Justin, was born on Christmas Day and their second son, Sacha, on the same day two years later, this couple seemed almost enchanted.

But away from the cameras and the public appearances, and increasingly isolated at 24 Sussex Drive, Margaret struggled with a growing depression offset by bouts of mania. Her behaviour seemed inexplicable to many -- including to herself -- and two years after the birth of their third son, Michel, the marriage broke down. Gradually, though, a fragile stability took hold, as Margaret found happiness in work as a photographer and in her marriage to Fried Kemper. But the tragic death of Michel Trudeau, closely followed by Pierre Trudeau’s own passing, caused her to spiral into suicidal depression. Finally accepting the diagnosis of bipolar, she sought medical treatment.

Under intense international scrutiny, Margaret Trudeau has survived remarkable highs and devastating lows. Since regaining control of her life, she has brought her formidable passion to helping others, be they Canadians suffering from mental illness or families living without access to water half a world away. A recipient of the Society of Biological Psychiatry Humanitarian Award, she now offers her journey of recovery, acceptance and hope, and generously shares with us many previously unreleased photos, in one of the most important memoirs to come out of this country

Having lived in Montreal during the time when Margaret Sinclair married then Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau; her book brought back many memories of her public life when she was such a young bride and mother. I found her book to be very engaging, well written and hard to put down. Kudos to Margaret Trudeau for helping raise much more awareness and knowledge about brain illnesses, especially her condition, by revealing so much about herself and her journey to a place of wellness. I highly recommend this book to people interested in Margaret Trudeau's extraordinary life to the date of publication (2010), Canadian history and politics and/or brain illnesses and recoveries.

I enjoyed reading this book. It details the hardships of public life with a mental condition that is hard to understand. Very well written, hard to put down.
Kulwes
Such a good read about an amazing lady and the children she raised and one is now the Prime Minister of Canada! She must be very proud of her accomplishments.
Kulafyn
This was a great book. It was interesting from a bipolar perspective, but also the Canadian history was informative.
Umge
More interesting than I thought it would be. Her behavior was always a curiosity, and here I got to read about what was going on. It must have been so hard to be sick while in the spotlight. I also got a better look at Prime Minister Trudeau, who seemed so glamorous at the time, like a JFK - type figure.
Arashilkis
If you love Canadian biographies, this is essential reading. A very interesting woman and product of her times.
Mala
Very interesting and well written. I never would have guessed this about her. I wish her and her family the best. Hard to put down.
This book is for my mom. She remembers reading about Margaret when she was "jet-setting" around the clubs. She enjoyed reading the book.
