The 10 books you need to read this spring: Crazy Town

Rob Ford has been making headlines around the world for a few years now -- and just when you think it can't get any worse, it does. Crazy Town provides context to the headline-making man by the journalist who, uh, cracked the crack-smoking case for the Toronto Star. Robyn Doolittle's inside look at the Ford family saga is topping Canadian bestsellers list. 2014 is an election year for the city of Toronto -- and Rob Ford is running for re-election. So prep for what is sure to be a most memorable mayoral campaign by reading the story behind the story that's dominated headlines for so long. (And, if you're so inclined, pick up My Journey by another high profile Toronto mayoral candidate -- Olivia Chow -- to maximize your electoral reading.)
