IEFMM arrived from Amazon a couple of weeks ago. I put it on my "to be read pile" and, since it was on the top of the pile, I saw it on a daily basis. Not being in the mood for a business book this Saturday morning I picked up yours. I finished it in one sitting!
We clearly speak the same language.
Guy, Goldie and Martin were in my Mac High graduating class. I boated on Lake St. Louis; skied at Mt. Rigaud, Ste. Sauveur, Jay Peak, etc., went to Expo, but didn't see The Beatles. I even think I had friends who lived on Devon Place - the Thorntons (Chris & Penny)???
I have no recollection of you. But I know you now! :-)
Thanks for writing the book. If you're a fan of Seth Godin you can now count me as a member of your "tribe". I'll recommend it to other ex-Montrealers.
PS - John and Yoko did their "in bed for a week" at the QE not the Ritz though I like the Ritz better. Or maybe I should say I liked the Ritz better not knowing if it, too, is the same as I remember.
PPS - last time I was in Montreal Ben's deli was being converted into condos. You aptly end the book with the same truism I often bemoan myself.
However, I found myself completely engrossed from the first chapter. It is written in such a way that it doesn't matter if you aren't familiar with the setting, it is still very easy to connect with the story. I enjoyed reading such an honest and personal account from a very interesting childhood.
I almost wish I had grown up in Montreal.

Wonderful book. Made me tear up and then some. Sheds light on what we have lost in this great city. Hopefully the Republic Of Montreal will fix all this. [...]Published on April 15, 2013 by EFXP
