Seriously, guys - has anyone read this book? I need to get myself a copy of this.
The hilarious podcast Canadaland from Jesse Brown ventured off the radio waves and into print last year.
The CANADALAND - A Guide To Canada(Published In America), the exposé on all things "Canada" is a book that is sure to hit home for many of us.
Here is the books cover - and it has got to be one of the most "Canadian" things I've ever seen.
The books description on Amazon reads:
Do you think of Canada as that “nice” country with free healthcare, majestic woodlands, and polite people? Think again.
The CANADALAND Guide to Canada (Published in America) is an outrageous exposé of Canada’s secrets, scandals, and occasional awkward lapses in proper etiquette.
Inside, you’ll find illustrations, maps, quizzes, and charts that answer the most pressing questions about Canadian history, politics, and culture, such as:
- Canadian cuisine and sexuality: Do they exist?
- What does “sorry” actually mean?
- Justin Bieber, Rob Ford, Malcolm Gladwell: Why?
- What is Québec?
- Should I f *** the prime minister?
This absurd guide digs up everything from buried rage to buried oil, uncovering Canada’s bizarre history and shocking present. One thing is certain: you’ll never look at a Canadian the same way again.
Jesse Brown is the man behind the Canadaland podcast that brings on all the laughs about our culture here in Canada.
Little side note about Jesse Brown, his Alma Mater is McGill University!
The cover of this book, alone, makes it worth the read!
