Torontonians: do you know your city?
The newly released Toronto Book of Everything is a fact-packed book that covers slang, food, urban geography and more.
MacIntyre Purcell Publishing Inc. has published titles in the Books of Everything series for over 25 years and notes that the Toronto book is currently the number one title in its category.
The book is packed with information about Toronto. Statutory holidays, area codes, population statistics, weather highs and lows, and even the average salary of artistic professionals compared to the national average. The book is peppered with fun content like "5 Ways to Say Holy $!!$ It's Cold" (in 5 different languages) and Bay Street slang like "bear trap", "dead-cat bounce" and the "killer bee".
Well known Torontonians also provide their insights to the city, from experiences when they first arrived to recommended places to visit. For anyone who wants to know more about the city of Toronto, Toronto Book of Everything is a great place to start.
