Loved this. I actually read this in ARC form, which may or may not have anything to do with its falling apart at the spine, its pages now billowed to the wind, somewhere. I am more interested in blaming its eventual disintegration as an inevitable result of having been read and re-read too many times. I would actually give it 4 1/2 stars, because some of the WCs (as Doonan calls them) were not entirely interesting to me, but each brought a different face to wackitude.

I loved Doonan's ethological appreciation for the species, including craftiness and an interest in entrepreneurship, as well as the dark side of wacky. It's all fantastic and a brilliantly unhelpful aspirational manual for life.
