I would recommend this to ANYone. Whether you enjoy reading or not, give this book a chance. It'll open your eyes to some of the deeper parts of life :)
In three words, the book is: Hilarious, Inspirational, and Thought Provoking. Well, four words technically.
I read it myself before sending it, and was disappointed at the lack of depth. There are some nice descriptive passages and a few insights that made me stop and think once in a while, but the whole time the narrative felt "forced" and self-conscious. Too self-conscious. I know it is a self-reflective kind of book, but there's too much reflecting about his own self-reflection. And not at a very deep level.
Maybe it's because I am not a 20-something male. Apparently others have found it very enjoyable and insightful. I haven't the slightest desire to diminish anyone else's enjoyment. But I don't think my engineer friend will like it either, I'm afraid. Oh well. Maybe I'll borrow "Blue Like Jazz" before I buy it...
