Not comprehensive, but doesn't pretend to be. I like the quirkiness of this book, especially the dispensation to not have elaborate hors d'oeuvres for every goddm occasion.

Informative, but as a reclusive (and broke) college student, I have very little use for the information! Waah.

Interesting. I don't agree with everything and the style is a little snooty.
