I'm sure someone at the local public library reviewing use stats will be surprised to see how many times this was checked out and renewed, mostly by me. This was the second time I checked it out and renewed it multiple times, and I finally made myself sat down and finish it. It wasn't that it was interesting, it's just that I kept getting distracted by newer, shinier library books.

Once I actually got into this I found it engaging and also funny. I was surprised here at the number of reviews on this book, once when trying to decide whether to give up and return it again, or renew it, I went looking for an audiobook, only not to find one. Apparently, no one thought there would be a market for such a thing. I'm not sure why I would have really liked this on audiobook. I hesitate to recommend this because it's a lot of information for casual reading, but I'm glad I finally read it.
