    At the beginning of Douglas' book his off beat style throw me. However, it eventually began to resonate with me. Definitely a page turner. The chapters are like little sardonic fables perfect for a quick read on the morning commute. And the book is FREE! So what do you have to lose by downloading it :) Stay open minded!!

    It's an okay book. The first half or so is pretty good, but the book is so riddled with spelling and grammatical errors that I could hardly read all of it. Simple mistakes like "are" instead of "our" can get very grinding after a while, and show that this book probably wasn't proofread before publishing. I found the last few chapters to be very hard to read and nearly void of humor. I wouldn't recommend it in the first place, but if you simply must read it, save yourself some time and stop a few chapters before the end.

    Excellent read for a freebie. TONS of typos and grammatical errors though. You really have to know what the author is intending to say in several areas because the editing is so bad.
  • Very great book!!!!

    For the most part I found this book entertaining, though there were many areas where you had to know grammar and word usage to know what word should have been in place of an incorrect word. The spelling throughout could have benefitted from spell checker. I found humor in some places and the failed attempt at humor in other places. It was an okay read all in all, not a great read but an okay read.
  • Good book

    Really great read! I would recommend it to anyone. A few chapters weren't that interesting, but I would read it and more books by this author.
