2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly Written 9 May 2013
By Douglas Whitney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book may have a number of facts, but it is poorly written. The subjects jump, sentence structure is poor, and it is extremely difficult to follow. Granted it is a text book format but it seems poorly organized and not at all easy to follow. I was really looking forward to learning about the details of Canada and the government but have reread each sentence so many times I have been left very confused.
