Very entertaining and a pretty unique style that's for sure.,
This review is from: How an Average Man Lived an Adventurous Life: Includes Lists of the Best Things in the World & Six Tropical Paradises Where You Can Live for $500 a Month (Paperback)
Just finished the Kindle edition of this book in one sitting - so clearly for me it was that rare occurrence - a good read. Very confusing when you start reading this book as it is not in chronological order, but hops all over the place (and time). By the time you get a little way into the book this rather unique way of writing no longer strikes you as odd, and it seems quite natural. Each "story" is quite short and completely self-contained and with my ever decreasing attention span this makes for pleasant and easy reading. It certainly doesn't make me want to go out and be adventurous but it was good to see how the author managed to overcome the difficulties that presented themselves to him on numerous occasions. It's not a travelogue, it's not a Biography, it's not a Philosophical journal, in fact having finished it just 10-minutes ago I'm not really sure what it is, but I enjoyed it immensely :) I bought the Kindle version of this book immediately I saw that Clifford Pickover had it down as a good read - we have very similar tastes in reading material.
