    OK - He has done better

    Maybe I expected too much, but as a fan of Hugh's previous efforts I felt that this collection would have been better suited to his newsletters. As a book it reads like a blog - which isn't necessarily a ding - and it feels disjointed. My main criticism is that, well, it's not his best work. The subject is treacherous to begin with and I don't feel like there was enough new thought in here to justify a book. Skip this one and go reread "Ignore Everybody."

    Dreadful - I expected much more

    Awhile back I was in the library glancing over their section where they put they're new or up and coming novels when I saw this one. Since I'm a blogger I just thought this book would offer me a few chuckles.

    Unfortunately this book was not amusing, entertaining or witty as I had hoped it would be. In fact I actually had to force myself to continue reading this itty bitty 128 page book. Throughout the whole book I was waiting for the author to be witty but instead I was met with a mish mash of comics and nonsensical ramblings about the authors life here and there. Plus I was still waiting to see how this book related to blogging at all really.

    Not once did I ever get a true sense that the author was a blogger until he mentioned it in the text. If he hadn't I would never have known. As for the little comic sketches that he included I thought they were poor drawn but maybe that's his style I don't know but I did not see the point of any of them and thought they added nothing to the book.

    Overall, I don't really think the book had any purpose really. I mean it was just a bunch of rambling so I never really got the point of it and that in itself was my biggest irritant. I would not recommend this one to anyone but if you do want to read it, borrow it from your library first.
