Fat Chance by Gilbert Klein is hysterical and historical, and I'll be reading it more than once.
Every time I finish whatever chapter I'm on and decide it's time to put it down and go to bed, I read the title of the next chapter and decide I have to read it too.
The author's writing style is excellent with a good flow that makes this a quick read for its length.
