The Canadaland Guide to Canada

We rated this book:


Canada. Our strange friendly neighbor to the north. A land of bears and moose and beavers and rocks and trees and trees and rocks and Rush and Mounties. That’s pretty much the sum of American knowledge of Canada. Sure, plenty of Americans have dreamed of moving to Canada to escape the increasing insanity in our country, but how much do you actually know about The Great White North?

Well, the Canadaland crew has got you covered with The Canadaland Guide to Canada, your one-stop shop for historical, cultural, geographic, and political information galore. And although there are plenty of humorous moments, the true stuff is arguably funnier than the made-up parts!

But you know what? I actually did learn plenty about Canada that I didn’t know, particularly about the history of Canadian terrorism and the one about the richest families and their influence on media and policy.

Although this book very much follows the pattern of The Daily Show’s comedic volumes — complete with snarky commentary in the margins — The Canadaland Guide to Canada has its own flavor and its own axes to grind. It’s a quick, enjoyable read that’s sharper than you might expect.
