a book for quick-reads and quippy wit-- but sometimes it was obviously a stretch for the author to come up with something in this limited format. i look at this as a kind of exploration of thought and storytelling and something more than a little worthwhile. however, it smacked of being directly attributable to Twitter and so seemed to want for true ingenuity. this book's template for writing these tiny tales can be a fun game or exercise for anyone in a group, pair, or solo much like haiku. originally, i gave it two stars but i have changed that to three for the Good Idea that it is.
