Inhaltsangabe: In February 2013, Toronto's mayor, Rob Ford, was caught on video smoking crack cocaine. Weeks later, he was accused of groping a campaign rival. In March, he had to leave a gala for being too intoxicated; in May he was fired as the coach of a high school football team. The events were part of a stream of Rob Ford "mishaps," which include DUIs, accusations of domestic violence, and a trial where the Toronto City Council stripped him of his powers. Through it all, Ford's former chief of staff, Mark Towhey, stood by his side. Towhey was part of Ford's inner circle; he'd joined Ford's mayoral campaign in 2010 and quickly became one of his closest advisors. He responded to media questions regarding Ford's drug and alcohol additions, his anger management problems, and, of course, the video of Ford smoking crack. In May 2013, Mark Towhey had a confidential conversation with Ford. It was shortly after the video was made public and also followed rumors of Ford's involvement in the murder of Anthony Smith, who stands beside Ford in an infamous picture released by the source who tried to sell the crack video. Thus far, the public only knows two words from that conversation; Towhey told Ford to "get help." They also know what happened next, Towhey was fired. In "Mayor Rob Ford: Uncontrollable," Towhey gives an insider account of working with Ford, covering for him, managing a man who people see as a joke, who trips over himself in videos; who throws candy at children instead of handing it to them; who rants and raves, and gets belligerent in meetings and at private events. This is a must-read for Canadians voting in the mayoral election, as well as fans of Ford--and his antics--all over the world. It's an unparalleled tell-all and perhaps what's most amazing is that Towhey bears no ill will toward the mayor. This is not the account of a man eager to get revenge. It's simply an up-close look at the mayor--and what goes on behind the scenes.

They also know what happened next, Towhey was fired. In Mayor Rob Ford: Uncontrollable, Towhey recounts the conversation and shares what Ford was like behind the scenes. This is a candid insider account of working with Ford, covering for him, respecting his strengths, and managing his weaknesses. It will release after Ford has dropped out of the mayoral election, as he battles health problems, and as the world waits to see what this larger-than-life personality does next.
