David Rakoff sadly isn't with us anymore and what he's left behind is not only a window into his own life, but a collection of stories that everyone can relate too. This book aptly titled "Half Empty", is about pessimism and how it affects the author. Each "chapter" is a new story and each is better than the last. I believe during the time he was writing this he was also battling cancer, which amazes me because if this is supposed to be a pessimistic book, him not quitting and pushing on is a clear tale of giving it your best and this just might be his best work.
