If Why Shoot the Teacher, Never Sleep Three in a Bed, and The Night We Stole the Mountie’s Car made you smile, chuckle, and laugh out loud, then here (as the man said) is just the book for you!Yes, Max is back! And Braithwaite fans, along with anyone who reads for the warm companionship of a good laugh and some delightful insight, need look no further.Here is Max’s Book of Books – the wit and wisdom of a forty-year career that has won the author hundreds of thousands of book-reading and movie-going fans, and a Stephen Leacock Award for Humour as well.Here is Braithwaite on growing up on the prairies in the twenties and thirties, on the growing pains associated with raising children of your own, on Ontario, where he now lives, on himself, and on his writing career.Each fiction and non-fiction piece in this colourful collection is prefaced by the author with a short introduction dealing with the work itself and the author’s own feelings about it. Together, these personal observations provide a warm and insightful look at one man’s career and personal life throughout a lifetime of writing for and about Canadians.Max: The Best of Braithwaite brings together all the places, times, and faces – pensive, nostalgic, humorous – that Braithwaite fans have come to expect and love.Maximum Braithwaite indeed!
