I read it.  I liked it.  It's well written, has some funny asides and foot notes.  It talks about some of the common first year cases in a way that made me #1 remember cases I'd forgotten about and #2 made me remember why I'd tried so hard to forget them in the first place.  Also, you can learn some magic from it. 

It's written in a manner consistent with his blogging.  So, if you don't like that, you may not like the book.  But I really enjoyed it.

It seems like that guy gets a lot of flak on here for plugging his blog/book, but I haven't read any of his stuff.  I'm surprised no one has started bashing him on this thread yet, ha.

I'll never think of fish sandwiches the same way again

I considered reading it but based on his blog and LSD trolling, I decided an examination of the undigested Craisins in my most recent stool was a better use of my time.
