A book worthy of joining some of the greatest examinations of human behaviour. Alex Davis, espritdecorps.ca (20120424)
Definitely a book that will get people talking and turn a few heads, I couldn't recommend it more. Alex Davis, espritdecorps.ca (20120424)
The book offers considerable meat to chew. . . . I cant agree with all of Richlers analysis, but I am grateful he has raised some important issues that have not been, but should have been, fully debated in Parliament and in the rest of the country this past decade. Paul Gessell, The Ottawa Citizen (20120509)

"Noah Richler has written an important book of great clarity, insight and courage. This book deserves to be read and discussed in every political office, classroom, book club and legion hall in the country." — Ron Graham, author of The Last ActSee all Product description
