Absorbing and acerbic

So happy to see Rivethead in iBooks. It's a fast read and a sobering peek into a shop rat's life (Grandpa retired from Saginaw Steering Gear, many of my family are/were second-tier-supplier workers earning way less!). For those who last, they can look forward to ruined shoulders & joints. Think they're overpaid? Try the job yourself just once. Thank you again, Ben!

Good book! Few editing flubs.

The book was excellent. Really comical, cynical, dark, upbeat, and a fantastic read all together. My only gripe was that there were numerous editing errors. As I'm unfamiliar with how books are e-published, it could be a simple spell check mistake. It never made too much of a disruption in reading and wasn't on every page.
