I purchased the book expecting this to be something like a Stephen Colbert book where the book focuses on the character with some facts trickled in. However, the book is pretty much the opposite. The book is large amounts of information, with very little "Saul" personality trickled in.
"Make the check out to Ice Station Zebra, strictly for tax purposes I assure you..."
Saul doles out his folksy wisdom from down on the farm, or something to that effect, in this novel. It's filled with hilarious lines and "how to's" on how not to wind up in the slammer. Written from the perspective of Saul dictating to a ghostwriter, you get the image in your head that Saul is sitting down, legs up on a electric ankle massage machine sipping vodka and doling out all those little nuggets of wisdom.
Enjoy this book for what it is and you'll enjoy it for a dive into more Saul and his sense of humor.
If you're not a Breaking Bad or Better Call Saul fan then I'd say steer clear. Most of this won't really seem like it has a huge point.
Good read none the less, just not as box checking for those not into the fandom.
This book is absolutely priceless, especially for all the fans of Better Call Saul and Breaking Bad. It reads very easy, throws in great gab about how to do this and how to do that, and it makes the judicial system out to be a joke in this country, of which we all know it is. Real life pointers make it a smooth read and I am very satifisied with it!
