Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great gift for guests We'll be hosting a family-friend sometime in September and we purchased this along with a few other quintessentially Canadian knick knacks to welcome her with, A bit of a light read and the images are more portraits of notable Canadians (giving their personal insights into what it means to be Canadian) I kind of wished they squeezed in some landscapes and pop culture, but it's good for what it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing gift for AirBNB Hosts As a super proud Canadian, while travelling I always leave my AirBNB hosts a little taste of Canada such as some maple sugar/maple candies, maple leaf gear and definitely something red and white. Having purchased this amazing coffee table book for my home, I will be so proud to leave a copy of “The World Needs More Canada” for my hostess in Paris, France in the spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from never has a title been uttered in such a way that is so poignant and profound I am a proud Canadian and really thrilled when this book was announced and released. Such Canadian pride is displayed with everything and everyone that is Canada from poets to authors to world leaders to musicians to athletes to actors etc!! EVERY Canadian and everyone else needs this book. ! I love my country Canada and love the patriotism that was displayed throughout the book. The title is brilliant and this time you can judge a book by its cover because #TheWorldNeedsMoreCanada #ReadTheNorth.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome! Definitely agree with the title, and it does a great job celebrating our awesome country. I wish it had a bit more modern Canadians, but it has the classics which made it a great read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Agreed! I am a proud Canadian and agree fully!! The world does need MORE Canada!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This book needs to add modern Canadians This book contains the usual suspects, and therein lies the fault. This book contains Martin Short (old picture) Leslie Nielson, Margaret Atwood, and as thus reads like a history book. They do include Mike Myers, but his own book on the love of Canada is a better read. Yo be a little generous, it could make a gift to Canadians abroad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Decor Piece The book itself has little substance, but the design is worth buying it. Excellent typography and stunning photography. I put it on display in my house.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not so much Would rather get a history book on canada or others that are in the 150 like the coloring book or again the one on the sits - not much I found in this one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a reasonable price this book actually just gives you the whole history of Canada, like the wars and etc; which you can easily find online! So i don't think you should spend money on this when theirs a PDF online you can see this is story on! But i did learn some things i didn't know!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from u love it The Eight Day Book is a really good book for Mystery, Action and Adventure Fans. I definitely recommend this book to someone. Don't read this book though. Read the first 2 books first. They are "The Eight Day" and "The Inquisitor's Mark". Be sure to read all 3 of these Books. I am so attached to these books. Sadly, the author announced that she won't be writing any more books in this series. Anyways, it's a good Book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice book, but... Yes, it's a coffee table book. A quick thumb through and most of the writings are short blurbs from some well known Canadians. Not really what I was looking for.
