    1. "Life shouldn't be about sitting around staring at frosted glass. Life should be lived and that's all there is to it."That quote of Mr. Reed discribes him very well. This book is well written with a fine sense of humour and with some interesting notes about his life and career.


    2. The question here is not do you like the book but do you love Mr. Reed. Personally I do and always have and yet still, I found the book extremely funny, insightful, surprisingly tender and incredibly well written


    3. It's a good book, he writes like he's talking to you and it's very beautiful. It's a little jaunting at times. Also why I'm off and on on reading it is because of my moods.
