it was ok
Recommended for: people in California experiencing a mid life crisis
Read in September, 2007

This book really let me down from the very beginning. Mainly, it did not save my life one bit. For example, there are very few conceivable ways it could save my life. One, I may be trapped in a room filled with carbon monoxide and the book may be the only conceivable way to prop open a heavy door. Two, I may be attacked by a wild shark and be able to momentarily stun it by throwing the book its way while I escape. That's pretty much it. Though it deals with the mid life crisis this very wealthy man has as well as the weirdness that is hodge podge California-famous actors to housewives to donut shop owners, it didn't enlighten me any or cause any fantastic epiphanies to fly my way. So, of course, I consider that false advertising.
