Tried to finish reading this book but it was terrible. I suppose this is what you get when Americans are put in charge of creating a book for Canadians. Had it been written BY Canadians FOR Canadians we might have gotten something "heartwarming and inspiring". No offense but Amy Sky was the only Canadian you could get in touch with to write the foreword? And Matt Duchene was the only Canadian hockey player you could think of? What about Great Big Sea, The Tragically Hip, or even Michael Buble or Jann Arden? Or Ron MacLean, Don Cherry, Peter Mansbridge, Brian Orser, Avril Lavigne, Nelly Furtado, Nickelback, Paul Tracy, the Barenaked Ladies, Glenn Howard, Brett Lowrie...the list goes on. This book could have appealed to both young and old Canadians but instead we're left with this. Not even a quote from Celine Dion. The stories were incredibly boring and fed into the typical stereotypes that Americans think of when someone mentions 'Canada'. I would say just to the Canadians who are curious about this book to JUST STAY AWAY. I suppose I was fortunate enough to have bought this book for 40% off. But even that was still too much. Total waste of money and a huge disappointment.
