If you're a fan of The Moth Radio Hour or This American Life, this book is for you. I burned through the pages quickly, captured by one story after another. In the final analysis I found that the stories had a weave to them. The warp and weft were equal parts vulnerability and humor, with a brilliant timing that carried the reader along before any inclination to pass judgment could settle in where it didn't belong. Kudos to Mr. Barber for a first book that leaves me wanting more.
