Excellent book great for when you only have short periods of time to read. Most articles in the book were very heart warming especially the animal section. Not every article was about the famous dog Marley but they were all very touching and it was nice to learn more about John Grogan. Id recommend this to anyone and would also give it as a gift.

I thought this was a good book of blended stories from John Grogan. He hits many different topic, from 911 to his deloved Marley with many in between.

Poorly chosen articles and the title has nothing to do with the content. They suck you in because of Marley and me which is a classic but this is not worth looking at.

Couldnt get past the first 50 pages, slow and uninteresting. Not funny, stick with Marley and Me, this is not even in the same league
