Seems like an interesting read if you have nothing else more important to buy and/or you're a hardcore fan (such as myself). My only complaint is that he seems to be in the wrong medium. I would be much more entertained if this was a documentary/interview, as he seems to ramble.

Not the type of book for the reader who wants more action in a book all he does in the sample is ramble.

Not a good of a book for a halo reader. Would be better for a book for halo dummies but its ok to read if you have nothing elese to do.
