First nonfiction book I've really enjoyed in years,
This review is from: Outside Looking In: Adventures of an Observer (Hardcover)
Normally, nonfiction will not keep you at the edge of your seat. However, this book grabbed on to me, and did not let go. I could not wait to read more about his escapades or the people he writes about. He communicates his life without hubris, yet, he has lived a marvelous, unassuming and well-intended life. And many of his friends are people I would love to have met once. And more importantly, his stories will make you smile.
Thank you to Gary Wills for writing this. By the way, you don't have to know anything about him or the people he writes about to enjoy the book. He is a brilliant writer who weaves entertaining stories to read.
Overall, this book is well written, easy to read, and flows.
