This book badly needs editing. It is the first book by McMurtry that has disappointed me. It reminded me of talking to and elderly person who keeps telling the same thing over again and doesn't remember mentioning it before, it's interesting to them only.
I agree with the above poster: this book does need some editing. I found a few mis-spelled words and awkward sentences. Then again, I'm sort of nitpicky about grammar things. If this sort of thing doesn't bother you, then great! That being said, this book wasn't really what I expected. Larry McMurtry is an antiquarian book dealer. He buys and sells the rare and hard to find books, and talks extensively about his unique experiences within the book trade. It's not a bad book, and is actually quite interesting. The chapters are very brief: several of them are only a page long, and almost all of them are less than five pages. It makes for a quick read. I liked it!
