    1. It s official I gave up on this one I made it about half way through and just couldn t find a compelling reason to continue reading it I m certain that the author had a point he just never seemed to get to anything resembling a way to get there.There are some amusing short glimpses into the author s life but the I read the he sounded a bit obsessive.I think this would probably have worked out better if I had taken part in the lecture series this seems to be a collection of notes about.

    2. I don t really understand everything I just read, but I think I loved it Would be good to read again and dissect in greater detail.
