really liked it

What I liked best about this was that it has everything that I've come to expect from reading Brendan's blog and some of his other books. He's smartassed, he's sad, he's a 14 year old in a 32-year-old's body...and most of all, he's real. He doesn't set out to write this platitude-filled account of the life-changing truths he learned as he watched his wife and best friend battle stage IV cancer. Rather, he lets us in on all the day-to-day stuff that goes on and lets us see him at his worst during all of it. That's what I found most engaging about this memoir.

Brendan Hey! I've matured a great deal since then! I'm now a 16-year-old trapped in a 40-year-old's body!

Seriously, though, thank you for the great review!

I kept laughing through the book because so many of those same comments would be the type of thing my husband would say.
