Vikas Adam's tone is one of warm conviction as he recounts Jagmeet Singh's story of growing up an outsider, embracing Sikh religion, and handling his complex relationship with his alcoholic father. Singh, who is the leader of Canada's New Democratic party, sets the tone of intimacy from the beginning as he narrates his introduction. Adam seamlessly picks up the narration thereafter. Listeners will feel like they are having coffee with a good friend who is sharing his struggles and successes in an honest and straightforward way while providing a peek at a rich culture. Adam also provides a credible Punjabi accent to Singh's relatives. This memoir is not about a man's rise to political power; it is a deeply personal story of how he came to accept who he is despite social pressure, and even family pressure, to conform to other expectations.
