    2. Definitely a good read. Though not all of the contributions are noteworthy, all of them are informative and several have made me chuckle. I particularly liked the chapter on trash and will never forget "Here's worm in your eye" by Bob Braine ('Hosting others').

    3. this is a great bathroom read as none of the entries are too long or too deep that you couldn't read over the course of a bowel movement. like any compilation, some articles are fascinating, some funny, and some kinda boring. no surprises here. if you have any interest in what the title suggests, definatly take some time with this book through your next month's bms. i have a copy of it and if anyone wants to borrow it, just ask
