This book is awesome

I absolutely loved this book it made me feel proud and happy to live in Canada and be a Canadian I loved how I lived roughly in the same area and knew exactly what he was talking about I loved his sense of humour but still being able to capture the truth of what was being said definitely worth a read maybe even more than once

Don't waste your time on this!

Started off well enough and then quickly plummeted into some tasteless ignorance and prejudice. The author tries to be balanced and in just a couple sentences that all disappeared. He pumps Canada up and up and up and...you get the idea, not realistic.

High taxes guarantee nothing

Canada is awesome. However, paying high taxes guarantees nothing. Canadians pay about 50% on average of their income to taxes. For most Canadians, taxes are higher than cost of housing and food combined. In the end, we are $1.6 trillion in government debt plus, our own personal debt on top of that. Add to that the everyday cost of living. This book was a bunch of Liberal Ideology put together to justify high taxes.

Nice little freebie

Fun little listen with thoughts about what it means to be Canadian. He has an authentic voice reading his own writing, so I went on to try How to Get Back Up and am enjoying that as well.

Great Canadiana

This brought a lot of smiles to my face as I listened. I was driving in my car along the Trans Canada, admiring the fall colours, & this well written & well narrated book was the perfect accompaniment to my drive. 🇨🇦🤗

It was Awesome!

I really enjoyed this short story. I could totally relate to many of the authors experiences of growing up in Canada. I will be sharing it with my kids!

I’m ready to move

I thoroughly enjoyed this expose’! What the author shares I know to be true. Having been to Canada several times, I appreciate the culture, the norms, & the people. The only down side, & I know this from living in Minnesota, is the prolonged cold winter!

A Story about Growing Up in the 70's and 80's

If you grew up in the 70's or 80's, and you'd like to reminisce about your childhood, this is an entertaining trip back in time. You'll relate even if you didn't grow up in Canada.

Unexpected

I don't remember how or when I picked up this title. After finishing a draining long book I found this in my library and gave it a listen. The beginning with the bank calendars did not give me hope. Soon though, his utopic musings started to sound very appealing. I can see why so many people choose to live there. Were I not so firmly established where I am, his descriptions made me think that maybe I could choose the same.

It Really Does Sound Awesome

Listening to this book takes hardly any time at all.

I recommend it for several reasons:

It has a delightful story

It is really easy to listen to quickly

It makes you wish you could visit, and perhaps live in Canada (if you haven’t or don’t)

It makes you wish the world was more like Canada

Makes me want ketchup chips (and to try some of those other things he mentions)

The author narrates it and makes the story better told in his own voice

And of course, now I really want to visit Canada even more than I did.

Very fun and enjoyable, this is the first of this authors books I have listened to/read. I can’t wait to listen to others that are available.

Enjoyable little listen

Sweet tribute by a native to the country he loves. I enjoyed learning a little bit more about my neighbors to the north. I’ve no doubt that Canada is awesome.

Joyful!

I really enjoyed this little nugget of joy, celebrating Neil’s home country. I have only been to Canada a couple of times for work, but am planning a personal trip and now am even more excited to visit. A nice insight into the Canadian psyche, plus a list of Canadian foods to try, and interesting things about Canadian communities to look out for.
