I enjoy reading Chicken Soup for the Soul books and have ... May 3 2015
By Teena in Toronto - Published on
Format: Paperback
I enjoy reading Chicken Soup for the Soul books and have read and enjoyed many over the years. So when I heard there was one about Canada, I wanted to read it.

The chapters are:

* Proud to be a Canadian
* Ice Time
* Slice of Life
* The Cultural Mosaic
* Wilderness and Wildlife
* Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder
* Holidays and Traditions
* Summer Memories
* Life Lessons
* Winter Wonderland
* Inspiring Canadians
* That Famous Canadian Hospitality

There are 101 stories written by Canadians living in Canada, Canadians now living in the States and Americans about Canada. I found that some were cute but a lot were dull. Plus the majority of them were so generic and could have been about anywhere, not specifically in or about Canada. There are A LOT of hockey stories.

At the beginning of each story, there was a quote. I found it odd that there were lots of quotes by non-Canadians.

It was good exposure for Liona Boyd because each chapter started with a song written by her. Nothing against Liona Boyd but we have lots of Canadian musicians who have written songs about Canada that could have been used.

I was disappointed with this book.

Waste of money June 10 2012
By Mel Vee - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.

Saccharine Content Warning Feb. 24 2012
By E. M. Chilton - Published on
Format: Paperback
In a book review, Abe Lincoln once wrote: "If you like this sort of thing, this is the sort of thing you'll like." If you are a Canadian who huddles as close to the U.S. border as possible - or live in the US - then you're going to love this book. But, if you live in Moose Factory and pick it up at the Hudson's Bay store, you're probably going to puke. Even in Sudbury - home town of Alex Trebek - you're pushing your luck. Who am I to judge?

My arrival in Sarnia almost coincided with the album release of "Did She Mention My Name" by Gordon Lightfoot. I wrote home that those Toronto pigeons lacking a high school diploma were were working towards their GEDs. The third car of each subway was reserved for free open heart surgery. But when I arrived at Lakehead University to complete my masters' degree, Thunder Bay was hosting the annual International Fur Trappers Convention. Whoa! Where the hell am I? It took a few books by Farley Mowat to provide the answer. I needed a winch on the front of my 4WD Scout, and a rack for a canoe silently to transit Quetico Park. I took Canadian citizenship - not abandoning my American - and have been a dual for 38 years. I am able to assess my homeland and my adopted land.

Without major difficulty, I could find 101 stories by Canadians from Corner Brook to Nanaimo which would make your hair stand on end - documenting abuse of power against citizens by governments and all branches of law enforcement. Canada's Bill of Rights is a paper tiger. The geography, alone, divides and conquers the Canadian populace. Much of this book makes reference to Hockey. I came to feel that watching hockey is like obediently looking into the theater's wings, while the magician center stage makes a fool of you. Please test these opinions while seated in a library and skimming the book. Thanks.

I have been pleased with all Chicken Soup for the Soul Books. Being an owner of over 100 of these unique books, I believe each one have a different message. They make great gifts. I recommend them to all who wish to have short true stories that are sometimes tear jerkers but warms the heart..

Strongly recommend it to other Canadians. Their love of sport is strikingly obvious but not interesting to a non-sports lover.
