My husband enjoyed this book as it taught him everything his grandfather could not. The website is also very entertaining.

If you like slow books, you'll love this one. This is a medicore read. It does not humour the audience at all times however it seems to compensate for its creative storyline approach. I am divided as to whether or not I'd recommend this book and recommend you judge for yourself. This book was discussed at my book club by several members whom have which have read the material, and all have mixed feedback with 50/50 liking and disliking this book.
