I didn't get the point of the book, I really didn't. Was it a life story? Observations which lead us to a conclusion? A comedy (albeit ironic) sketch?
I thought it was none. It really is a conversation, ramblings really, as personal as diary entries. Every chapter should be titled something like "here's something else people do that annoy me personally. Except that entries are by a person I don't care about and wouldn't know if he hadn't appear on Jon Stewart. If you already are fan of Mr. Rakoff and you are looking for his insight into mundane, then this book might have been written for you.
I gave it two stars for his warm voice and artful writing. The writings read like poetry but there was nothing of substance to it.
