This book contains lots and lots of 'what if? ideas' some good some bad. I found one or two interesting. I think the main problem for me was that the book was aimed at an american audience. Lots of the scenarios made no sense or had no relevance to me (English). I also found it hard going - in that it was difficult to actually read. I was thinking 'What is she talking about ?' quite a lot of the time. For instance she often refers to classic works by the christian name of the main character - fine if it's Huck or Holden but confusing a lot of the time. As an English reader I needed sentences that were finished or at least contained more information and a few less colloquialisms. I shouldn't complain I suppose - it is an american book after all and other people have found it useful, but if you're not american perhaps there are better books for you to try?
