So, You Want to Be Canadian

So, you want to be Canadian? Who doesn't these days? Canucks are enjoying a major renaissance in attention, from their enlightened social policies to their wild and wooly pop culture. This playful, trivia-packed book is a long-overdue celebration of all things Canadian, from the mysteries of "eh?" to the difference between an Ogo Pogo and a Windingo to how to prepare moose stroganoff (mmm!). Featuring a dreamy list of Canadian hotties, a toe-tapping roundup of Canadian smash hit songs, a handy CanadianAmerican translator, and pointers on how to eat, dress, and apologize like a Canadian if you weren't lucky enough to be born a Canuck, So, You Want to Be Canadian demonstrates once and for all why Canada is so cool (formerly just cold).

I've always been a Canadian at heart, with occasional forays into south BC to soothe my Tim Hortons addiction flare-ups, so it was natural for my friends Jim and Judy to buy me a copy of this book. There are many facts outlined regarding Canada which many of us already know (Shatner, Guess Who, beer, etc.), but there's also a lot of new discoveries within the cover that will inform, entertain and perhaps stun you as you leaf through. Always a good read no matter how many times you consult it, I do so frequently while sipping on a hot double-double at home outside of Seattle, made with 'smuggled' Tim Hortons coffee. Hey, you gotta have your dream, eh?
