A Great Read
This compilation of unique stories are told through a humorous viewpoint that left me laughing numerous times. With a bunch of short stories this book is perfect for a quick read in the car or a great way to pass the time in the waiting room. Each story offers a blend of humor, outrageousness, and some insight into the life of a stay-at-home, corporate America executive, down to Earth man whose stories are so crazy it's hard to believe they are true stories.
Loved it! Humorous tales of family and work
This is a truly remarkable collection of essays. Scott Ryan captures the indignities of modern work, family life and social interactions with great humor and insight. This work stands up next to collections of better known humorists such as Lewis Black. You will not regret this purchase. Enjoy.
