I liked the first 3/4 of this book. Baker describes growing up poor, half-orphaned, and at the mercy of various relatives during the depression, but it never comes across as depressing or hopeless. Then he grows up and joins the military, and the last segment of the book is a search for sex. Way, way too much time is devoted to exploits, in one form or another, with women. I could have stopped reading when he goes off to college, and left off happy.
