As a longtime reader of Leitch's 'Life as a Loser Column,' I'm thrilled by the book. My old favorites were there along with some new essays that remind you why you started reading him in first place and never stopped. But it's his universal appeal that works and keeps you nodding furiously to yourself and muttering 'uh huh' as the pages turn. Though it's for the best that no one but Will has lived his life, it's good of him to share it with us. We need all the help we can get making sense of the world.
