While I enjoyed reading this book when it first came out I didn't find it translated well into an audio book and really couldn't wait for it to end.
I enjoy Doug Coupland books a lot, but would hesitate to get another one in audio format.
This is a great audiobook. Couplands wry humor is best played at a rate of speed that you catch yourself laughing and then groaning in self recognition and then move on before any harm comes of it. I loved Microserfs, Life After God, Generation X and Nostradamous. This doesn''t have the timely breakthrough insights of Microserfs and Generation X, but it has plenty of humor and cultural digs. Enjoy.

I'm a geek, so I kind of tolerated it, but most normal people would just skip it in disgust. The author is incredibly self-indulgent. His long lists of unrelated words that he thinks are "clever", which could be just skipped over easily in printed format, are incredibly annoying when trying to fast-forward past them in audio format. The dialogue and characters are utterly unbelievable. Unless you're a huge geek and Douglas Coupland fanboy don't bother.
