The whole book whilst interlaced with the LEGO theme really is about the lead character's life changing and morphing into his new self. Having something to focus on to escape from a crisis I'm sure is something most people can relate to. Overall it was an interesting read, certainly an interesting angle, not only as it's told from the mans perspective, but it's also quite raw. - Ryan McNaught, LEGO Certified Professional
There are parts in it that every AFOL, particularly thosewithyoungfamilies, will relate to. The discussions between theprotagonistandhis colleague quite enlightening and you may well learn alotaboutdifferent approaches to nomenclature and taxonomies and howtheyrelateto sorting and naming LEGO parts. - Huw Millington, Brickset
A nice reading book that we AFOLs will identify with as we the protagonist return to the world of LEGO. - HispaBricks

It turns out that the rabbit hole is also infested with uncontrollable (and overly detailed) medical disorders, a destructive marital crisis involving two young kids, professional challenges, unexpected non-translated Japanese language text, and difficult to follow narration.
If you are an enthusiastic AFOL and have a background in academia or technology, you will find interesting discussions around taxonomy development and the LEGO hobby in this book; don't feel bad if you decide to skip the graphic sections - they aren't central to the part of the story you want to read anyways...
