I think sometimes people click "unhelpful" when they mean "I disagree". Can there be an agree/ disagree button next to the helpful option?
You'd have to be a HUGE David Sedaris fan to be happy with this purchase.
But wait a minute - that's wrong. Being a HUGE David Sedaris fan is what made me hate this purchase. Because I've already heard/read everything in it on This American Life or in the New Yorker. And I've listened to his great stuff often enough to know that this is all very much his B game.
So only buy this if you don't like David Sedaris at all.
Or wait til Audible comes to its senses and sells it for $4.95. It has a pleasure content similar to that of a Mocha Grande so I think that price is fair.
But 14 bucks is just stupid.
Raised an atheist, I have sometimes found the voices of atheists can be loud, uneducated and dare I say intolerant. This book will not change your views, but it will challenge you to examine them. Humor and personal anecdotes can be the best way to express one's views. Ms. Sweeney is honest and funny! What a great combination.
