"Eminently readable and entertaining."
"Pierre Berton with attitude."
"If Douglas Adams (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) and P.J. O'Rourke (Holidays in Hell) ever had an extraterrestrial Satanic love-child, it would probably write like Will Ferguson. That is, it would be observant, attitudinal, occasionally offensive and funny."
--Los Angeles Times
"The Brash Young Writer this country has needed for a long time."
"Will Ferguson is a talent. He writes refreshingly, provocatively and sometimes eloquently."
"Ferguson possesses a crafty eye for detail, not to mention a highly developed understanding of the essential folly in what passes for everyday life."
"[Ferguson] is the quintessential Canadian. He's as Canadian as toques and five percent beer....A Canadian's Canadian."
Praise for Why I Hate Canadians:
"An entirely digestible skewering of our national bedrock."
"Funny and abrasive...Ferguson does not try to please everyone, a rather un-Canadian approach, and that's just one of the reasons his book is so much fun to read."
--Halifax Daily News
"A wickedly funny book!"
--Fredericton Daily Gleaner
"Aggressively patriotic...Ferguson show his love for Canada the way an older brother shows his love for a younger sibling—with a wedgie."
"...reverent, incisive, and informative...I give it a resounding five out of five maple leafs."
"A smooth read...Ferguson is both insightful and hilarious."
--Georgia Straight (Vancouver)
Praise for Bastards & Boneheads: Canada's Glorious Leaders Past and Present:
"Ferguson...[gives us] an utterly hilarious tour of our historical contradictions."
"Don't be fooled. Beneath the campy rhetoric lies a serious and impressively researched narrative of the pivotal events in Canadian history."
"Ferguson is Canada's myth-buster extraordinaire....His writing is concise, easily digestible, humourous, dramatic, frank, and sometimes shocking."
---New Brunswick Telegraph-Journal
"Lively, knowledgeable, opinionated, disrespectful, debatable and immensely readable."
"A rip-snorting, rib-tickling, white water ride through this country's rich history of outrageous political scandals."
--See Magazine (Edmonton)
"Who says Canadian history isn't fun?"
--Ottawa Citizen --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
