Bill Heavey's writing is full of dry wit and brutal honesty, and I found myself engaged in the collection of stories he put together in this book. The topics he covers - foraging in the lawn, fishing frogs with bare hands - seem unapproachable at first. But the author recounts his experiences in a very approachable manner, as he documents his mistakes just as much as his successes. I'm definitely going to seek out his other books, this one was a hit!
