I purchased and bought this book four months ago now and felt my stomach drop in anticipation to read it! It only took me two days to complete, thus my dissatifaction with the brevity of it. I found myself nodding, laughing, and even touched at subjects it explored but not expounded. This book explored problems that I face within both sociological and geneological aspects of my own life. I just wish it was L--O--N--G--E--R !!!! I wish this trio would re-convene and write another book of this genre... C~Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
