Great listen. Very funny and interesting story. Good to have the author read the book, its also read very well.
I highly recommend.
Firstly, I want to say that this book is at times quite witty and well read. However, I do not agree with other reviewers that it was a 'life changing' experience or anything close. The whole book can be summed up in the mantra that the book itself states so frequently - 'say yes more'. If that advice is life changing than I must be missing something.
I did enjoy parts of the book, but other parts were slow, repetitive and fairly predictable. The fact that this is supposedly a true story gave it some interest, but ultimately I found it quite a laboured journey and one that was fairly un-satisfying in the finish. I suppose if it actually was a true story than that is why nothing more incredible happened. I was expecting something more akin to 'The Dice Man' by Luke Rhinehart (an excellent read by the way).
Anyway, to sum up - it is an OK book. (It passed the time on a long drive to Scotland in my case.) However, I would not really recommend it. Sorry Danny, but it?s a Maybe from me rather than a Yes.

I bought this audio book in preperation for watching the movie with my wife.
I listened to the book over a few days when I was working away from home, staying in hotels...
It is amazing, there are so many things in the book that everyone will relate to.
I was so so so excited when i went to see the movie with my wife after hearing this great book.
The movie is good, but it is incomparible to the genius that is this book.
I recomend everyone gets this book. It is 10000% better than the movie!
