  • I Was Told There'd Be Cake

    Crosley can do no right despite the best of intentions-or perhaps because of them. Together, these essays create a startlingly funny and revealing portrait of a complex and utterly recognizable character that's aiming for the stars but hits the ceiling, and the inimitable city that has helped shape who she is. I Was Told There'd Be Cake introduces a strikingly original voice, chronicling the struggles and unexpected beauty of modern urban life.

    Overall

    This book started as very interesting with the ponies essay. I thought the perspective was good, and had a good amount of clever insights... but the majority are real bombs that bored at work i can't sit through.

    Story
    (41)

    It's starting to happen everywhere, in business, social, and spiritual circles; people are discussing whether they are dealing with a problem at a "green" level or how they can try to see things from a "yellow" perspective. What do these colors mean? They're all a part of Spiral Dynamics, a sweeping view of human consciousness, taught by Dr. Don Beck, that has received Ken Wilber's "highest recommendation".

    Story
    What disappointed you about Spiral Dynamics Integral?

    The slow pace of it is painful. Like an old man telling you a story that drags on and you hope for a point, but you've tuned out already.


    What was most disappointing about Don Beck’s story?

    All the back story to start off with and not enough hook to keep your attention or want to care about the author.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He narrates like the story is written, dull and boring.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Sleepiness. My body started to fail me as my arms felt 12 feet long and back muscles grew too tired to support my upper body.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was recommended, but oh my was it painful to try an continue reading.
