This is book is simply made up of a lot of articles written in The National Post about Rob Ford starting back in 2003 when he was still just a councillor & ending in December 2013. There are some very interesting details about his family's history with drugs that I did not know about & very detailed information about the wire tap conversations the police had & many details from the court documents last fall that I hadn't seen or heard about on the news that I watch & read. So definitely some interesting information in there. But, a word of warning, The National Post has a fairly blatant right-wing tone so left-wing readers such as myself might feel their blood pressure rise a bit over some of the comments written by some of the National Post journalists in this book.

The writing style of the journalists is ridiculous. They appear to be fans of the run-on sentence that doesn't say anything. | couldn't be bothered to finish this book.

Stay away, and read Crazy Town instead.
