Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Unlike the previous reviewer, I have actually read this book. It is a very good guide to Canadian usage of the English language. It does exactly what you expect it to do.

It is unfair that the previous reviewer gave the book a rating of 1 because he has some problem with Amazon's service. That is a matter for customer service and is NOT a book review.
