This book is really interesting and engaging, and aspects of it have stuck with me since I read it a few weeks ago. There were a few things that disappointed me; I didn't really get the overall framework of the book. He writes a chapter for each year of his life, but then near the end he jumps to where he is now, and I just didn't really get where all that was going. It also makes one wonder whether he actually remembered those things, or fudged certan things (which is a question that comes up in all memoirs). The book could be read in small groups, and includes questions.
