It isn't always easy being Canadian, according to Will Ferguson, but it can be a lot of fun. Asked to write a follow-up to his runaway bestseller Why I Hate Canadians, Ferguson, who's Canadian himself, recruited his brother Ian -- comedy writer and executive producer of the Canadian series Sin City and a Canadian too -- to create this ultimate guide to the country's cultural quirks. The result 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, social rules -- and, of course, their trademark death-defying search for the middle of any road.

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.
