It is hard to believe that Bill Guttentag is a "two-time Oscar-winning documentary and feature film writer..." and "teaches a course at Stanford University".....or that Jessica Case, "(my fantastic-in-every-way editor)" according to Guttentag, is really an editor.
This book would have been an interesting story if I did not have to put it down so many times in frustration over the bad writing quality. A grade school child could have written it with less errors. I had to force myself to finish it just to find out the ending.
This is the most poorly written book I have ever read and I read a lot of books.
I'm glad I checked it out at the library. Do not waste your money unless the author/publisher re-writes and re-publishes a revised and corrected version, then it will be worth your time and money.
