"Perfect Youth is a valuable and accessible addition to the study of punk in general, and to Canada's place within it." - Stephanie Hart, Quill & Quire

"Sutherland has brought the movement together with a clarity and intimacy never achieved before, and for its moments of guilelessness and raw delight, reveals the value of a scene that self-deprecates as often as it’s been dismissed." - Natalie Zina Walschots, The National Post

"Perfect Youth documents the undocumented, the unloved, the unwashed, and the foul-smelling glory of Canadian punk in its embryonic years." - Gillian McCain, co-author of Please Kill Me: The Uncensored Oral History of Punk

"Sam Sutherland's loving tribute to the True North Strong and Free punk daze explodes through the pages with a riveting blend of old-school insight and 21st Century analysis. Perfect Youth indeed!" - Steven Blush, author/filmmaker, American Hardcore

"A fascinating, necessary story written buoyantly and well, and with a whole lotta vomit." - Dave Bidini, musician and author of Writing Gordon Lightfoot
