This book is hard to finish. It's mainly perhaps from lack of an editor, which is clear from the typos, but I wouldn't mind the typos if it was well written'. It is more tedious than funny, and some of the sentences need to be read slowly in order to be comprehensible. If you read VERY fast, you might find it somewhat interesting. The basic source material could be re-written into an entertaining book about a third as long. Even if you enjoy poorly written books with lots of exclamation marks, this book will still disappoint. The writing isn't bad enough to be funny, it's just clearly written by someone who thought that cobbling together research was all it would take to make the subject interesting.Was this review helpful?
