This book begins totally brilliant and finishes still pretty strong. If the second half had been as funny as the first i would have given it five stars. Among other things this is a great send up of the self help industry.
This book was a keen, biting, unapologetic comment on our society. The "untranslatables" were the best part of the whole thing! The book actually led me to purchasing "They Have A Word For It", which was Ferguson's main source for these powerful words.
This book made me laugh, it made me think and it made me read everything Ferguson has written since.
He is a very intelligent, funny writer. He occasionally angered me with some of his opinions about Canadians and what it means to be one, but again made me think, which I like from an author. Fiction or Non.
This book sounds very cool, thanks for the suggestion HeatherS!
A brilliant critique on our penchant as human beings to buy into the latest fad. Close to a satiric masterpiece, Ferguson provides razor-sharp observations regarding the outrageously successful self-help industry and how this reflects on our society. Hilarious and scathing!
