Publisher's Summary

Comedy superstar Mike Myers writes from the (true patriot) heart about his 53-year relationship with his beloved Canada. Mike Myers is a world-renowned actor, director and writer and the man behind some of the most memorable comic characters of our time. But, as he says, "No description of me is truly complete without saying I'm a Canadian". He has often winked and nodded to Canada in his outrageously accomplished body of work, but now he turns the spotlight full-beam on his homeland.

His hilarious and heartfelt new book is part memoir, part history, and pure entertainment. It is Mike Myers' funny and thoughtful analysis of what makes Canada Canada and Canadians Canadians and what being Canadian has always meant to him. His relationship with his home and native land continues to deepen and grow, he says. In fact American friends have actually accused him of enjoying being Canadian - and he's happy to plead guilty as charged.

A true patriot who happens to be an expatriate, Myers is in a unique position to explore Canada from within and without. With this, his first book, Mike brings his love for Canada to the fore at a time when the country is once again looking ahead with hope and national pride. Canada is a wholly subjective account of Mike's Canadian experience. Mike writes, "Some might say, 'Why didn't you include this or that?' I say there are 35 million stories waiting to be told in this country, and my book is only one of them."

    Story
    "Great descriptions of Canada, all politics at end"

    Mike Myers does an excellent job of presenting rather nuanced views of Canadians and Canadian accents in the first half of the book. Then in the later half he goes on lengthy diatribes about how the Trudeaus (Daddy and Junior) embody all that is right with Canada and that Canada should embrace their brand of progressive politics as Canada's mission statement. He even makes actual policy prescriptions at the end.(!)

    Still, the first half of the book is so strong, the book is worth a listen.

    Story
    "It's Mike, what can you say eh?"

    I wish it was longer and kept looking ahead to see that sadly, the end of the book was near. It's inspiring to hear someone's story and realize that a couple changes of events in their life could have altered their outcome in such a large way. I'm sure his determination and talent would have brought him into everyone's lives anyway sooner or later. I was curious to hear stories of working with Eddie Murphy (since he was an early SNL fan) and the shenanigans that went on. I do realize that would have went off the tracks as far as what he was striving to write "aboot" (I still don't hear "aboot" when we say "about") .

    Overall, I loved it and know for myself that he captured my love for being Canadian and taught me a few things. Mike is to Canada what #14 was for the Leafs.

    Story
    "Very personal and relatable"
    What did you like best about this story?

    It struck so many chords with me as a fellow Canadian who grew up in southern Ontario. It was laugh out loud funny in many spots. It was a trip through my life and experiences as a Canadian.


    What about Mike Myers’s performance did you like?

    Completely authentic from the heart.


    Any additional comments?

    We all need to be able to laugh at ourselves and that is certainly a requirement if you're a Canadian listening to this book. Mike is unabashedly, unapologetically Canadian though and that is fantastic. Rock on Mike!

    Story
    "Thoughtful and perfect for any X-Pat from Canada "

    Mike seemed a little reserved and possibly a little emotional / hurt by how Canada has treated him, however he came across as completely honest and heart felt. I realized as he told his story how close his and my upbringing were and we could have easily been the same kid growing up in Canada. I miss home, but I too moved for work, career and his story is the story of many who have grown up a Canadian of the 60s and 70's ... Thanks Mr. Meyers

    "Refreshing, like a nice, cold Moosehead for the Brain"

    The humor (translation: humour) is mostly warm and nostalgic, with one heaping poop anecdote thrown in for balance. There's a bit of sorrow, but it never gets dark. Myers is a comedian who's laughing on the outside AND on the inside, and when he cries, he'll tell you all aboot it.

    Story
    "OH Canada!!!"

    My Irish Immigrants ancestors came to the US through Canada..many who made their homes there before moving to the Midwest areas.

    Mike Myers wrote a beautiful love letter to the country of his origin and its evident his heart is always with out northern neighbors. I have many friends who have moved to Canada from the US..and I assume many more will join them now that we have a narcissist racist idiot like Rump "leading "???? our country......I have considered it myself.

    There is much the USA could learn from Canada..we just need less idiots in DC that think they know everything ......Rump will get us all killed.

    Remember he stated in the campaign that he NEVER APOLOGIZES.

    It simply means we have to apologize FOR him to other countries.
    I know I am VERY SORRY that the USA is full of blind sheep that follow this man of pure evil..and continue to stand up for him even in the middle of his LIES LIES LIES.

    GOD HELP US.......


    Congrats Mike.
