  • The Areas of My Expertise

    In the great tradition of the American almanac, The Areas of My Expertise is a brilliant and hilarious compendium of handy reference tables, fascinating trivia, and sage wisdom on all topics large and small. Although best sellers such as Poor Richard's Almanack and The Book of Lists were certainly valuable, they also were largely true.

    I tried and tried again to listen to this book, and just didn't enjoy it at all. I got about 45 minutes into it and gave up.

    The wry and the heartfelt join in David Rakoff's prose to resurrect that most neglected of literary virtues: wit. As he finds himself in all the far-flung hinterlands of our culture, this fish out of water winds up satirizing himself more than his subject matter, to hilarious effect.

    Overall

    Like Rakoff's short essays on TAL, but hours of his story telling seemed like HOURS. I'm about 3/4 thru and having a hard time wanting to listen to more.
