Oof. This book was a bit of a slog, and while I started off being dazzled by numbers, I soon started to distrust them because of the author's odd sense of humor. Eventually I couldn't tell when his tongue was in his cheek, and whether or not it had been there the entire time. By the last couple of chapters, I was skimming hard. I'd advise Mr. Kalpanik to splurge on an editor for any future projects.
