Forget excellence. This book will help you rise above it all and become, well, not too bad.
Charles Gordon, a survivor of more years of cottage life than he cares to count, lives in Ottawa. For many years a writer for the Ottawa Citizen, he is the author of several books, including The Canada Trip.
