Manhood for Amateurs ranks in the top tier of audiobooks I've listened to thus far.

Chabon's life hasn't been more amazing than other people, but his expressions of his feelings and experiences are wonderful. His writing illuminate so many great points about life and being a person amongst a huge society.
This book was horrible! This book was seperated into several boring stories of the author's childhood/manhood. The crux of each of these stories offered no real value or intrest.
