    " I read this book while on vacation. I guess I don't have a whole lot of very good things to say about it. The self-gratuitous and incessant name dropping and life of privilege episodes coming from a down-and-out older man seemed to be reminiscences of a dream life...not very believable and making me sick at the turn of every other page. The descriptions of life in his new job reminded me of jobs I held as a teenager and also made me feel pity for the author. I did appreciate his very real remorse and the poignant style in which he described his relationships (both past and current) with the people around him. This story could stand a lot of trimming. Its only saving grace was the ending. "

    " I'm finding this quite compelling and inspiratoinal. The author is very candid about his own transformation and his path to quit judging himself by other's standards, and use his own set instead. It was interesting and thought provoking. I enjoyed it. "
