5.0 out of 5 stars Can't ask anything more of a book., March 29, 2012

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It's hard to write a review of a book this good. It's like reading Mark Twain or Marcus Aurelius and coming up with words that describe the experience. This is How - was funny, horrifying, amusing and inspiring. It made me smile, cry, pull back, and in the end it gave hope. It is a glorious book about being human with all the pain and love that humanity includes. Self-Help? who cares if it is or isn't. This book is interesting from cover to cover.

I think your review might be going excessively overboard heaping that kind of praise and comparison, but it sounds like it struck a cord with you, so that's good.

I see that you have read others books by the author. I have not. I may or may not like his other books but this one did strike a cord. I don't believe I went overboard. It is my opinion, even now 2+ months later. Will everybody enjoy it as much as me? nope. That's why we have more than one review. Not everybody enjoys Aurelius or Shakespeare or The twilight books (vampires shouldn't spark) but it doesn't make the fans who write five star good reviews excessive. It just makes them people who enjoy the books. I'm not running out and buying everything Burroughs every created but if another of his books comes into my life I will read it. Mine was an honest review on how what the book's impact had on my reading pleasure. I am still recommending it to friends. Some have read it and recommended it to their friends.
