    A reviewer

    Although I was born and bred in Boston, I've lived on the sandbar known as Long Island for more than 20 years. Only when I'm home visiting friends and family still living there do I lose my non-accent and staht to tawk Bawstin. But I still observe the 'third car can go through the stop sign' rule, I go down the Cape for a week every summer, and of course, chowder is white: I haven't strayed far from my roots. But every time I pick up this book, I staht laughing at the introduction and don't stop until the end. If you ahn't from Bawstin (perish the thought,) you may have to sound out the words -- just say them like they're spelled -- but don't let that little oddity scayah you. John Powiz has written one wikkid pissah of a book!
