    I already have this in hard copy. It's hysterical! Very tongue

    I already have this in hard copy. It's hysterical! Very tongue-in-cheek, poking fun at a bunch of Canadian stereotypes. Anonymous reviewer needs to relax and open their mind a little. It's a comedic book.

    Crazy canadians

    We met a couple of crazy canadians (especially him!) on vacation this past year and had to get the book. We didn't know how the canadian got to be like he is but the book gives us a much better understanding (and appreciation!)! Would recommend to anyone who is curious about our northern neighbors or likes hockey.

    entertaining, light reading

    I enjoyed reading this book about our neighbors to the North. The information covered was very basic (e.g., names of the provinces, what is poutine) but it was covered in a very entertaining way. I think I read the whole book in an hour? Or not much more than that.
