really liked it

A very interesting and enlightening book. Susan Orlean 's collection of some very engaging profiles of all different kinds of people. She is a writer for the New Yorker and other magazines. She does a great job describing people and their professions and lifestyles. I've learned so much about things I knew nothing about like bullfighting, surfer girls, professional clowns, African Kings living in America, residential real estate in NYC and lots more. A quote about her writing says it all, "The best writers make you care about something you never noticed before."
