it was ok

I've read everything Mr. Gray released and I have to say, "It's A Slippery Slope" is perhaps the least funny and most honest of his monologues. He perhaps lets himself off a bit easy for cheating on his girlfriend and hooking up with a new woman. He addresses his fears of fatherhood head-on even if he turns them into spots of humor that seem designed to promote reader sympathy. The skiiing metaphor is overused. Mr. Gray pretty much bangs you over the head with this. I suppose "It's A Slippery Slope" could be best described as an apology/memoir from a guy who f--ked up and is trying to make the best of it; it's a quick, easy read but not particularly enjoyable.
