Reading for class. Miserable. This may be the worst book I've ever read. Really. - 1/30/09

Okay, I finished this thing. It's bad. It still is probably the worst book I've ever read, for five thousand reasons. Reason 1-3 are the terrible font it was printed with, Jim Goad is a douchebag, and Jim Goad writes like a 15 year old. Reason 1,433 is that Jim Goad is a hypocrite, and at some stage in the book exhibits everything that he bemoans in others. Reason 4,208 is the photo of a turd on the cover.

The only reason I'd read this book is as a study of the sociopathic mind. Not that he's not "right" on some of his complaints, but any points he scores in that way are undone by his contradictory and denialist accounts of his life. - 2/9/09
