did not like it
bookshelves: nonfiction, read-2011
Read in September, 2011

Yes, I did read the whole thing. I found it rather, well, stupid.

The tidbits of history were ok, I learned a couple of neat things.

However, the humor the author attempted was over done and rather lame. Top that with the HORRIBLE editing of the book, and you have a rather lame read.

Someone should have taught his editor that when you mean 2 things, you spell it as 'two' not as too. Also, a 'v' should not be replaced with 'u'. So many errors, it was hard to read.

I don't know if these errors are a part of the paperback edition as I read the ebook one.

I would not waste your money on the ebook edition (I thankfully got it for free). It isn't worth it.
