    1. A coworker of mine recommended this book so much to me that he bought me a copy. He said it was a bit of a slow start but then it gets witty and crazy and is intelligent. So with my fits and spurts I read it. It was a bit of a slow start but that didnt last long. This book did require a bit of work.
