Being Canadian can be a chore, says Will Ferguson, but it can be a lot of fun, too. For this follow-up to his runaway bestseller Why I Hate Canadians, Ferguson, a Canuck himself, recruited his brother Ian to create this ultimate guide to the country's cultural quirks, from diet and sex to sports and politics. The result is a nonstop comic ride through such topics as "Canadian Cuisine--and How to Avoid It," "Regional Harmony (Who to Hate and Why)," and "How to Make Love Like a Canadian."

I read some passages of this book to my Egyptian friend who had just come to Canada. We both laughed out loud at it's hilarity and truthfulness. My friend hates reading, but found this book to be absolutely hilarious.

Not my style of writing or comedy. Eg.
"Two loonies = one toonie Two loonies = about 50 cents U.S."
What's funny about that!? That was on p.2 of the introduction, and I didn't get much farther than that.

It was OK - not laugh-out-loud funny. I was put off by the fact that Ottawa was completely overlooked.

This is a hilarious inside look at that unique species, the Canadian, and their thoughts on such diverse subjects as beer, sex, dating rituals, sports, politics, religion-and, of course, their trademark death-defying search for the middle of any road.
