really liked it
bookshelves: biographical, humor

With all his eccentricity, I like A.J. Even though it's his job to get himself in ridiculous situations, he does it gracefully and artlessly at the same time. Somehow.
Like his other two books, he immerses himself in various scenarios to discover himself and better ways of life- only this time his experiments are much more short term and so are his written pieces about them.
Everyone tells him what a saint his wife is to put up with him, and everyone is right. If you read this book, and I recommend you do, you will get a chance to hear from that particular saint as an extra treat. Let's hear it for/from long-suffering Julie!
