I used to miss the show when we lived in the US and still enjoy it. She has written it up very well and the core of its humour and seriousness is captured. I love that she ends with description of UBUNTU - the essence of being human.

As a long-time addict of Canada's best current affairs radio program i was delighted to have the chance to read thse remarkabel vignettes. One can surely hope that more stories like this will come along soon.

If you like the show you will love this book! It offers background information that I found fascinating.

As much as I like "As It Happens", this book did not engage me. The written word, taken from scripts, was not as interesting as hearing the stories on the air.

I've listened to As It Happens for most of my adult life. I enjoyed this behind-the-scenes look at the program.

Good, quick little read if you like the CBC radio show; otherwise there's probably not much point.
