Description

An ultra-fan whose home is a shrine to the Vancouver Canucks thinks he may have the answer to the team's shocking collapse in the 2011 playoffs; a homeless man who has become a caring mainstay at the Downtown Eastside shelter run by the First United Church, and many anecdotes of generosity among people who have nothing are only a few of the inspirational tales that appear among Mike McCardell's latest collection of stories.

By noticing the little things and not ignoring the big things, McCardell shows us that everyone has a story to tell—his humour and his eye for the human condition have made him a wizard at finding magic moments in everyday life. In Here's Mike, the follow-up to his bestselling Everything Works and The Expanded Reilly Method, McCardell has chosen his favourite stories from the thousands of television tales he has shared at the close of Global TV's six o'clock News Hour.

The unforgettable characters and humorous happenings in Here's Mike will brighten any day and leave you wanting more.
