If you were a fan of Air Farce, this book is definitely worth reading. It provides a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the show and the cast, from memorable sketches such as the "Chicken Cannon" to the troupe's adventures touring Canada. I found the portraits of Luba Goy and the late John Morgan to be quite memorable, and the book ends with a poignant account of Roger Abbott's final days. On the whole, it's an enjoyable and informative read.

To briefly establish my cred, I've been listening to Air farce since the late 70s, recording their CBC Radio shows since 83, and I taped pretty much all of the run of their CBC TV program. In short, I've been with these folks for a long time. Reading some of the stories that Don & Roger wrote about in this book took me back to shows I still remember well. This is a loving history of what a group of friends gave to us all, and we are all the better for their work, and for having read this book. The stories about their adventures in radio and TV, and across Canada are great fun, and show how much fun they had. The one shame is that the late 2000s CBC executives, mostly having been hired from the US and not from public broadcasting, let slip from their grasp what would have been an ongoing franchise.
If you enjoyed Royal Canadian Air Farce on radio and/or TV, you will love this book, and treasure the people who made it all happen all the more.
