Product Details


“The saga of Rob Ford . . . is the rare political story that fascinates long after it has effectively ended. . . . [T]here is still more to be said about this man and his story. . . . [A]n interesting mélange of memoir, reportage, and pop psychiatry. . . . Filion’s decency and restraint in writing about Ford is Herculean. . . . The Only Average Guy is an entertaining read and useful addition to the literature about Ford.” —Quill and Quire

“Filion refreshingly offers some sympathy, and explanations, for Toronto’s former first family. . . . Filion has brought keen observation, high emotional intelligence and—given the widespread fear the Fords still evoke—a commendable frankness to [The Only Average Guy].” —Jim Coyle, Toronto Star

“Filion’s book offers perspectives and details that haven’t found their way into newspapers and other accounts.” —David Nickle, York Guardian

“[The Only Average Guy] offer[s] a sympathetic account of the Rob Ford saga, revealing a man who is more complicated than he appears.” —Global News
