A talented performer who blows most of what he earns on gambling; a morose Eskimo village that blames everybody else for their problems; a boring town in the middle of nowhere that earns the dubious distinction of Armpit of America... this book is actually a string of newspaper articles written by the author. They are mildly entertaining but I didn't find that most of them had any real point. Three or four in I decided I would rather read What Color Is Your Parachute.

EDIT: After reading some of the other reviews, I went and looked up "Fatal Distraction" online. It's a very good article. If all of them were of that caliber, I would wholeheartedly recommend the book.
