Rick Mercer Final Report Reviews
I loved this book!
Not only was it highly entertaining, I learned a lot of interesting things about Canadian politics. More importantly I learned that I need to pay more attention to Canadian politics.
I laughed out loud at the chapter about Norman Jewison. Read the book and you'll find out why.
I don't know if I can pass this book along....I may need to keep it for reference. I have a lot of questions now and I want to to try to find some answers.

So good, if you've never watched any of Rick's rants, you owe yourself this book. Entertaining, topical, and very very Canadian.
I give this 4 stars because I wanted something a little more memoir-y but this is all rants. Obviously the rants are great, I just wanted more.
