GuysRead Book Club: Suggested Reading
Annotation:A mostly sympathetic look at an oft criticised Canadian Prime Minister, R. B. Bennett, who also happens to be the only Canadian PM that was from New Brunswick. Although this book is poorly edited, Boyko offers us a unique perspective of Bennett.
Annotation:Entertaining story set on the Mirimichi full of characters, places and themes that will ring true for New Brunswick readers yet also enjoyed by outsiders. All three of the Brennen Siding Trilogy packed into one edition.
Annotation:Fascinating but bizarre, true story of how the Allied Forces fooled the Nazis into believing their course of attack was different than what they had planned. Operation Mincemeat has received high critical praise.
Annotation:The book that was pitched is not yet available via NB libraries - "An Economist Gets Lunch" by Tyler Cowen. This entry links to an adapted exerpt from the book that appeared in the May 2012 issue of The Atlantic.
