You Can't Crack Me...I'm a Rubber Duck by Charlie Northage is a memoir of substance.

So it's really hard for me to rate this book. I enjoyed reading it, but there are certain things about the writing style that made it hard for me to read. The extra short paragraphs and constant 'singling' out of words drove me crazy, but you can tell he really wrote with his heart and really put a lot into this book so I don't want to take away from that. I'm not sure how I felt at the end of the book... It kind of just ended... Making it feel a little incomplete. Overall I would recommend it.
