"10 Days is quirky and compelling. It is excellent book club material. It is a good way to start a fight." Holly Doan, Blacklock's Reporter, September 3, 2022 [full review at https://www.blacklocks.ca/review-memories]

"Ten days that prove there's nothing boring about Canada's modern-day history. It's all here from hockey to rock, from murder to reconciliation, from patriation to referendum. Yes, we're a complicated country but Aaron Hughes cuts through the confusion with clarity." Peter Mansbridge


“10 Days That Shaped Modern Canada seizes on granular details in order to grasp grounded truths about the universal from the standpoint of the humble and particular. Aaron Hughes invites readers to think about the forces that made the Canada that we live in.” Anne Trépanier, Associate Professor, Carleton University
