The book is okay. I have been on and off of it for a long time and I think its about time that I read the whole thing.

I borrowed this book from a friend's cottage and never returned it. I need to get on that, but I'll read it first.

Read it here and there over the years, it is really just a good trivial pursuit arsenal.
