Praise for The Art of Diplomacy


“A very original and interesting read about partnership and the important relationship between Canada and the U.S. The Heymans model what it means to be progressive in politics."

– Former Prime Minister Jean Chrétien, bestselling author of My Stories, My Times

“In this insightful and heartfelt recollection of their years in Canada, Bruce and Vicki Heyman give us a behind-the-scenes look at what diplomacy is really about: relationships. In these tumultuous times, The Art of Diplomacy is testament to the importance of listening to and learning from our allies.”

– David Axelrod, former Senior Advisor to President Barack Obama and CNN Senior Political Commentator

“A great read. Diplomacy between our two countries is needed now more than ever. The Heymans are an important reminder of how the art of diplomacy and friendship are practiced. A blueprint on protecting shared values and the most important relationship we have.”

– Rick Mercer, bestselling author of Final Report

“The Heymans blew into Ottawa in 2014 in a gust of spring Obama wind and left in the winter of 2017, as the chills of a new era were settling in. Their takes on diplomacy and the ties and tensions between Canada and the U.S. are as entertaining as they are informative.”

– Former Chief Justice of Canada, Beverley McLachlin
