While the story was interesting, and not exactly a complete surprise, I did think it was a good book. My biggest issue is with the reader, who happens to be Bill himself. Usually I like him to read his books, but reading stories is not really for him. He is not terrible, which would have lowered my rating. Essentially one point off for the story, and one for the reader.
It is an interesting look into reporters lives, which I think he was mainly after, at least in an cursory way.
