What is the measure of a man?

Sometimes it can be found in a plain, nondescript suit that was worn by a man who once used to take so much pride in what he wore.

Journalist and broadcaster J.J. Lee has written a book called "The Measure of a Man: The story of a father, a son, and a suit.''

It's a finalist for this year's Governor-General's literary award for non-fiction.

J.J. Lee talks with Mutsumi Takahashi about his book, which you can watch by clicking the video player.
