Format: Paperback
This has to be one of the strangest, most hastily-produced books I've ever seen. The way it's advertised, it seems like this might be a collection of funny or interesting quotes by disgraced Toronto mayor Rob Ford, and yet it appears to be a completely random compendium of things he has said over the years, selected entirely without care for their value. Real sample quotes in the book include:

"I'm caring."
"My kids and my family are first and foremost."
"We will reduce the size of city council."

Huh? It's like they found a dozen funny Rob Ford quotes, wanted to make a book, and had to fluff it out with 100 random other things he has said. Maybe it's meant as a gag gift or novelty item, but the entertainment value is pretty low.

I liked the idea of the concept - quotes by Booby Frod - and I paid my $5.00 to the Crackstarter campaign to get a copy of his "pearls of wisdom" while at the same time supporting the fundraising to buy the video of him smoking crack - but I must say, this book is pretty darn disappointing.

I read through all of it in 10 or 15 minutes, and my impression of the first bunch of quotes is that the person who collected them is a Fraud supporter. By the end of the "book" I wouldn't say that all the quotes are positive about this moron, but you really have to be educated about the REAL Ford to be able to see through which quotes are him lying, lying to himself, lying to the public, in total denial, or just spreading bullcrap.

Most of the asinine things this brainiac has said that you've already heard about in the press are in here - but this "book" seems to have required less of a time investment to create than ANY book you will ever read.

A much better compilation would be a collection of the stupid things he's said. That way you don't have to wade through all the self-serving political lies this blob foists on the public every day.

Most of the quotations are rather tame or mundane. Could have used more embarassing photos, more scandelous details, and possibly cartoons or captioned photos. Doesn't fully use the potential of the raw material now available.

This is perfect for anyone as astounded by Mayor Ford as I am. Its written pre-crack and pre-dixon bloods scandal.

"I don't think Rob Ford has a chance of winning." -Rob Oliphant,Liberal Member of Parliament July 2 2011
By J. Guild - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I you don't live in Toronto or Southern Ontario;you just may not have heard about Rob Ford,the recently elected Mayor of Toronto.He had been a Councillor ,a Conservative voice on a Council that been overwhelmingly Liberal and Socialist in attitudeand agendae ,together with a Mayor that has not only seen a great City degenerate to the point it has lost its way and is now nothing short of a disaster.While the city has become dirty,unsightly,and overgrown in weeds along its curbs and sidewalks, planters filled with garbage,garbage littering sidewalks in front of stores and businesses.the sidewalks falling into disrepair and the total road systems a glaring example of GRIDLOCK.Road closures for every conceivable excuse have made the city a nightmare ,not only during the workweek,but even more so on weekends.While the city crumbles ,the Leftists,controlling the city,endlessly ignore the problems and tackle insignificance with a vengence;in a way that only people of limited ability,lack of vision and incompetence can do.When one looks at the total mess the last 40 or more years of left wing or Socialist rule has allowed to take place ,along what could have been a marvellous Waterfront that could have made Toronto a beautiful place;the Council wiles away their time dealing with such miniscule issues as plastic lids on coffee cups,bicycle racks and bicycle lanes,placing a nickle charge on shopping bags (which by the way is never inforced),spending tens of thousands of dollars trying to come up with a different approach to Hot Dog carts,offering ethnic foods that the public doesn't want,allowing what was once jewels on the waterfront,Ontario Place,and the CNE to become tacky and little more than eyesores,etc.,etc.,etc.
All the while, these Leftists treat themselves royally, and had come to believe they were predestined to continue their ways.This attitude has become so engrained that when "a voice crying in the wilderness for change and getting back to reality,in the form of someone like Rob Ford;they not only didn't,but couldn't take him seriously.
Well,the people did,and they voted him in as Mayor and it is now possible to turn the City in a different direction.At least there is a will to change.
This is a very small tome,but it is clear as a bell what Rob Ford sees as wrong and how he intends to correct it.The Leftists certainly see Ford's words and ideas as pure heresy to those who have taken their elected positions and appointments as free rides on "the gravey train".
While those who have taken the people for granted continue their ways,the people have seen the light and all one can hope for is that Mayor Ford has the strength to succeed in implementing his ideas,but it won't be easy as a lot of politicians and bureaucrats have all intentions to continue on their self-serving ways.
You know what? I really think he'll succeed because the people are already learning that he is working for them and have had enough of what was served up in the past.
By the way,Rob Oliphant,who said He didn't think Rob Ford had any chance in winning,lost his election---which he didn't think he could lose either.
