Entertaining but seriously flawed
on July 5, 2013
The book is written in a very entertaining manner, but there are numerous factual errors. A glance at the section on sex will reveal this immediately, but a less prurient example is that the time given for a transcontinental (East Coast to West Coast) bicycle ride is given 11 days. As the crow flies, if the crow were riding a bike, he'd be traveling over 200 miles per day. In real life, it happens that I made that trip from L.A. to Boston, and it took 42 days, averaging 92 miles per day. Nevertheless, most of it is a fun read. Just don't believe everything it says.
