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.

What's to write about? If you search inside, the text will explain the idiom, "gilding the lily," and then go on to consider its relevance in the current environment of the Canadian language. This is a product that speaks for itself, the best linguistic reference source available for Canadian writers and wannabees.
