How to Be a Canadian - Will Ferguson, Ian Ferguson

This book started off really well. After all, there's nothing a Canadian appreciates like self-deprecating humour. But by the end, I almost choked on the bitter tone. It felt like the authors, Will Ferguson and Ian Ferguson, adopted the same tone my mother uses when she's unhappy with something I've done, burying her criticism under a very thin veil of humour while very loudly getting the message across. It took a bit of the entertainment out of it. 

 

That being said, most of the book held onto the light comedic tone. I laughed aloud pretty often and would still offer it as a fun insight into the Great White North.
