The book has been fantastic, a wonderful mixture of short stories that connect at appropriate times and rest comfortably between funny and thought-provoking. The book is very well written, and each story has its own delicious uniqueness. There are stories which you will find yourself referencing while in conversations with others and at first I wasn't sure that I would recommend the book to others, but now I find myself including it on my recommendation lists to friends. This really is such a fun and lighthearted book.
