The book took an interesting approach in mixing different types of print media and portraying itself as a mix/scans of these. It's a very personal work written in a round about way and has a lot of charm. There are a lot of things in it relevant to a programmer, but a majority of the book is just about living in a modern world, whatever that may mean. I got a lot out of it, and the ending was very "poignant".

This book will likely not be appreciated by anyone unfamiliar with why the lucky stiff – or _why for short – as it is a farewell letter of sorts, but just in case someone who doesn’t know him wants to know more, I’ll give a short recap. It’s not a spoiler, but I’ll hide it behind a spoiler tag so people who know the story can skip it easily (or people who don't can read this great summary of _why's online life instead.
