A nice idea, but the result is twenty-some voices in the conversation each trying to be original and nearly all saying almost the exact same thing. It felt like reading two hundred pages of blogs, and I just couldn't finish it. There were a couple of good chapters, but your really have to sift through the rest to find them.
