That's not all it is, though: this is funny. For someone who has real trouble holding onto any faith in the human race, and someone who has a dry sense of humor, this book is perfect. I read it over and over again simply because I enjoy it. Sometimes I just pick it up once a day for a month or so and read one of the entries, just to keep myself in line.
I wish everyone would read this book. It's the ultimate way to remind oneself not to repeat the mistakes of the past, and to get a smile out of it at the same time.
