The Canadaland Guide to Canada by Jesse Brown

Into the Wild

Read The Canadaland Guide to Canada Online Free - Do you think of Canada as that “nice” country with free health care, majestic woodlands, and polite people?

Think again.

The CANADALAND Guide to Canada (Published in America) is an outrageous exposé of Canada’s secrets, scandals, and occasional awkward lapses in proper etiquette.

Inside, you’ll find illustrations, maps, quizzes, and charts that answer the most pressing questions about Canadian history, politics, and culture, such as:

-Canadian cuisine and sexuality: Do they exist?
-What does “sorry” actually mean?
-Justin Bieber, Rob Ford, Malcolm Gladwell: Why?
-What is Québec?
-Should I f*** the prime minister?

This absurd guide digs up everything from buried rage to buried oil, uncovering Canada’s bizarre history and shocking present. One thing is certain: you’ll never look at a Canadian the same way again.

In a very fitting way, this is like an inferior (and cognizant of it) AMERICA: THE BOOK. There's a lot of interesting and funny stuff here, and it's inspired me to look into some elements of Canada's history that I'm ignorant of (Camp 210 whaaaaat?), but the whole thing is too broad to have anyth...

I didn’t really like this book. It was snarky and not funny. The individual topics didn’t cover much information or detail. The layout reminds me of something a fourth grader would submit as a research project. Good work for a 9 year old but that’s about it. I don’t recommend wasting your time or...

I like the Canadaland podcast. I think it often examines topics that go overlooked and asks some important questions. This doesn't. This is so completely cynical and sarcastic and hateful that I get the impression Brown genuinely doesn't like a thing about Canada. I don't think I'm missing the jo...

This book tries really hard to make you feel ashamed to be Canadian. Canada is known as a polite and progressive country, and while that's generally true, we also have A LOT of skeletons in our closet. This book takes all of them out and shakes them in your face for the world to see. It dispenses...

Who this book is for: Young, sarcastic, caustic persons who have lived (or currently live) in Canada and enjoy SNL. Or friends of the authors. Who this book is NOT for: Sunday school teachers, grandmothers, anyone looking for an honest guidebook on Canadian culture, older, respectful Canadians. It'...

I had to read it simply for the cover. Not for those who don't enjoy crude humour, but if you do it's worth a look. Yep, I snickered a time or two at the inside, and not so inside jokes.

This would be a delightful book to read as an ex-pat who has some distance from Canadian culture but also misses it dearly. It was fun to rediscover nuggets of Canadian history that I learned years ago in high school civics and history classes and read some facts that were new to me. As a Canadal...

Really quite disappointing. I either missed the humour the author was attempting to convey, or the book was just not funny. Either way I was anxious to read this book and bitterly disappointed.

Jesse Brown's media criticism and political observations are frequently astute and, frankly, indispensable in the role Canadaland plays in the media landscape in this country. But he's never as clever or funny as it seems like he thinks he is. There are certainly sporadic laughs in The Canadaland...

I'm a fan of Jesse Brown's podcast ("Canadaland") and I could almost hear him as I read through this. It is hysterical at points in the way any country's history can be hilarious but the fact that we Canadians tend to have a rather strong amount of moral superiority it's great to see us taken dow...
