. . . this book is as useful to locals as it is to tourists. . .

Here is an excellent key to the city that not just visitors but many Montrealers will want to have.
The National Post
[I] wholeheartedly recommend this book, which says a lot about this city you won't find anywhere else, both for tourists and residents. Tourists will get a great introduction, and locals will discover new dimensions to old places.
Montreal Review of Books
Whether you are a first time visitor to Montreal or a native, you will definitely garner precious information after reading this book. Highly recommended.
. . . a new, more charasmatic guide to Montreal's lesser-known places and people. . .
Part tourist reference, part compendium of lore, Montreal
is a witty, engrossing addition to the innovative series of guidebooks published by Vancouver's Arsenal Pulp Press.
The authors' wonky spin on things local is not only useful but hugely entertaining.
