Part confession, part comedy, part advice, part rant, and part an enthusiast's sharing, this book, though brief, is enjoyable and useful.

Witty, if you can follow his anecdotes, instructional in some ways, but mostly just amusing for the person who truly suffers the affliction of bibliomania. Accordingly, the best part is the eight pages of bibliography at the end.
