    Really thought provoking!

    Although it's probably not meant to be read all at one time, I did read "It's All About Me!" in two sittings. It's oddly addictive, even while making a person (Me!) think about the nature of self-perceptions.

    Value beyond just quotes

    This is a great book for having a quote available. But its value goes beyond that. These usually humorous but insightful collections of thoughts are reflections about the condition of man.
