Y rational person would turn to the fine art of negotiation but the mid life crisis isn’t a rational state of mind It is a head first plummet towards everything you haven’t been in the past A jetpack strapped to your back accelerating you downwards fuelled. It actually feels like a grouping of many mini stories rather than a story with large main events threaded through Whilst the story is a continuous one there is not a lot to the story so for the most part the books strength lies in the wording musings and the touch of humour No need for strong visualisation Stuart has you there right in the momentThe book is full of perceptive everyday events that are all very real and hey That could have happened to me It is like following a guy day by day where not a lot interesting happens but you get a little bit of insightful information and clever look at the ways of the worldA stronger story and this would have been bombproofI was lucky to receive an advance copy of this book in paperback from the Author himself

    I received this book through First Reads Giveaways It was a good story I liked it It had a bit profanity than I like but I assumed it would when I saw the cover It's just a book about human life you know? All the things that will and can go wrong and how we strive to overcome those things It was open honest and real It wasn't my usual type
