Even before those explosive events, Ford was a divisive figure. A populist and successful city councillor, he was an underdog to become mayor in 2010. His politics and mercurial nature have split the amalgamated city in two. But there is far more to the story. The Ford family has a long, unhappy history of substance abuse and criminal behavior. Despite their troubles, they are also one of the most ambitious families in Canada. Those close to the Fords say they often compare themselves to the Kennedys and believe they were born to lead.
Fast paced and insightful, Crazy Town is a pause-resisting portrait of a troubled man, a formidable family, and a city caught in an astonishing scandal.

update, or rather postscript required
This book was published before the conclusion of the 2014 Toronto election. It should be pointed out that Rob Ford withdrew from the election when he announced his cancer diagnosis, and died less than 2 years after the date of publication. Up to that date, this book is an essential assessment of the Ford Nation. The only flaw is that the narrator incorrectly pronounces "Etobicoke", repeatedly.
