Reading this book felt Just like having a conversation with a friend after work… yes, a bit one sided, but Robert’s style is so friendly that with each story or anecdote, he draws me in, so I could become part of the story.
I enjoyed the story separations, which made it easy to stop and start again, reading in little spurts which is often my style.
I love the honest feelings he presented about the not so politically correct guests he had to work with. The stories were told in an easy friendly manner, engaging me in the very experiences he was undergoing!
There were lots of cliches in the book, but that’s the whole point of it. Robert wanted to show the reader that these cliche people really do exist!
And finally, Robert ended with a little of his homespun wisdom on various subjects from comic books, parenting, grocery shopping while hungry, Reality TV, and today’s hero’s for our kids to politics and human nature.
You gotta read this book! It’s warm and friendly, and funny and every point he makes will make you go “Yeah, I’ve always thought that too!” It’s a feel good book in which we can all commiserate about the funny nature of our fellow human beings.
Thanks, Robert (he goes by The Hook on his blog You’ve Been Hooked) for a very entertaining time!
Oh, and for a Canadian, he’s all right in my eyes!
