Read full description of the books:
i really enjoyed this book, it was honestly a "page turner." because it is not fictional and the subject is so unique and unknown, i was consistently dyyyying to know what was going to happen next (like i almost missed my train stop a few times and that NEVER happens to me!) i really dig kurson so i knew i'd like the writing, but the subject was also really fascinating and i can't fathom how anyone who picked it up and read the dustjacket wouldn't be totally intrigued by it. HOWEVER. the main character, this mike may guy, is a total JERK. sure, he accomplished a whole lot. i read on and on and on about his accomplishments. terrific. i'm soooo terribly impressed. so he's like a crazy inventor and an entrepreneur and a gold medal skiier, that DOESN'T MEAN he gets to be an asshole. i feel like he completely disregards his wife's feelings all the time and the way he drives on in this reckless "i need to win at everything" sort of way totally astonishes the author but i think it's irresponsible to act like that when you have a family to take care of. he's kind of insensitive, and don't EVEN get me started on his opinion of women. UGH. what a JERK OFF. but really it's a great book.
