    "Disappointing"

    I was disappointed with this book. I have not listened to all of this yet and I have mixed feelings. The subject is interesting but it is poorly written. It is broken into sections, the frontier, cocktail party tidbits, and maybe something else, which makes this difficult to follow and delve into the information. The author attempts to be witty and make the subject matter fun and this takes away from the enjoyment of listening to the audiobook. The jokes are not funny or clever and there are way too many to deal with. Someone should have been a little more heavy-handed with the editing.
