anyone who has parents should read this book. Anyone who has struggled through their teen years. especially directed towards young men, anyone of any age or gender will identify with this character and enjoy reading this book. just like eddie, the main character, keep going after the first big disappointment. It really is just the beginning. I almost gave up on eddie after that. i didn't think i could continue. but i'm so glad i did! I couldn't put the book down
One of the best book I have ever read. Tremendous!!
This is a great book filled with reminiscing for baby boomer age folks like me! I can relate to a lot of the environment Ed grew up in.
He was feeling sorry for himself like so many kids do, then a series of events brought him back around. My kids wanted to stay in the car and listen even after we got home...
This probably doesn't appeal to the desensitized over stimulated reader (especially without family) - but it appealed very much to me and my family. Perhaps those who don't like it see themselves in the angry Ed?
It is the sweetest most heart warming and gut wrenching book I've read in a long time! Absolutely WONDERFUL!
Absolutely horrible. Do not waste your time. Beck tries to promote himself as a man of the people. His recklessness is even evident in this poor excuse of a publication.
Boring and . . . . just boring. Poorly written and badly read.
This book was GREAT!! Funny, touching, thought provoking, surprising. I enjoyed listening to this story, especially the relationship with Eddie and his Grandfather. The story makes you think about all the things that people in your life sacrafice for you and what they would do for you and how much you would miss it when it's gone.
