Why this book?:
Started for my book discussion.
As I read this book for my discussion I found it to be amusing and interesting in turn. But like so many nonfiction books I didn't finish it quickly. I did want to finish it though, so I decided audio may work better and checked that out. Surprisingly, the audio took longer for me to get into - I don't know whether not all the sidebars were coming through or if it was the chapter being read in question, or if just took me a bit to be in the right mind frame and adjust. Whatever the case, it did pick back up. I ended up enjoying it.
