Summary:

Welcome to the tragedy-of-the-month club! In one nine-month period, Mark Millhone's youngest son nearly dies from birth complications, his oldest son is injured in a household accident, his father is diagnosed with prostate cancer, and his mother has a heart attack and passes away. In the aftermath of this year-from-hell, his marriage also begins to fray.
He deals with this as only a "real man" could: he logs on to eBay and bids on his dream car. The like-new BMW becomes more than a car for Millhone-it's almost a prayer to the patron saint of used cars and second chances to make his family like new again. Joined by his estranged dad, he embarks on a dysfunctional family road trip to pick up the car-a comedy of errors that gives Millhone life-affirming perspectives on how to navigate the road of life's bumpy patches.

    I listened for an hour and 15 minutes before I realized this book was not about a road trip. If you are into dudes complaining, this books for you.

    This is a well read and well paced book. what the author encounters is what we all deal with in this life to a greater or lesser extent. As they say "life's what happens while you are planning other things." He is just trying to get his little slice of the American Dream that we all search for....the same passions, fears, heartache and little victories that are common to all of us. Well worth listening to.
