Ignore MacLeod and 39 Other Keys to Saving Money
on 1 January 2013
I usually enjoy books of this nature, but this really is the book I could put down. I wish he'd just written on a business card "I happen to have a wide range of high-powered contacts and as you'll never be as creative or successful as me, you shouldn't bother. Oh yes! Before I forget, I've got a penis." He failed to raise a smile from me . . . maybe there's a reason why he has to stick with base references.
To be fair, I'm sure this book is great for certain characters - eg those who also sneer at talented, creative, helpful and friendly people who aren't so well off, financially. A much more enjoyable read is "Steal Like an Artist" which will, at least, make you smile. It was written by MacLeod's mate, Austin Kleon.
Finally - and this isn't a criticism - but what the hell do 'kvetchy/kvetching' and 'schlepping' mean? I lost the will to bother looking.
