Unfortunately, his writing leaves much to be desired. He could have benefited by submitting his manuscript to any high school English teacher for editing. His sentence structure and usage are "pretty average poor."
On balance, though, the advice for someone wanting to really understand Hawai`ian culture and society is solid. If you're seriously thinking of living in Hawai`i, this book will offer some very good advice.
I was also bothered by the grammar and structure of this book. There were paragraphs that contained unrelated sentences, and just generally poor word choices throughout. I feel as though this was a rough draft that forgot to be proofread.
I could not recommend this book, as the poor grammar and political musing ruined the author's credibility for me.

I had to put this down about 1/2 way. Rambling and incomplete thoughts throughout. Was this book edited?
It seems more like a journal of random thoughts. Read more
