This review is from: How to Get a Grip (Paperback)
Starts off well, you think this guy is a straight-talker who cuts the crap, and even if the early content is pretty obvious, so what? It's a mixture of 'regain your self-respect and sense of humour' and 'get stuff sorted'. But little by little, you begin to wonder, as you get flashbacks to every loser you ever knew. By the end, he's lolling into your beer "an' another thing...", and you are looking for a polite exit - oh my god... get me out of here. If you take a look at the later chapters, you will get the drift of where you are headed - excuses for lame drunken behaviour that really will not in any way assist you to get a grip - this is a layabout's charter to misery. POSTSCRIPT : read his 'bio', and the signs are there: typing with four fingers and heavy drinking are nothing to be proud of - I learned to touch-type this year, and I wish I had done it 40 years ago, it's a great investment of time if you are an author and blogger, Matthew! These 'jokes' are just lame - you'd get booed off the stage.
