I read half the book and gave up. There needs to be more facts and less of his political ramblings and other ramblings in general. He is like a Sarah Vowell-lite (he does reference her in his book).

Positively, Offerman is a good reader of his book, and I did enjoy many of the facts in it. And I like his theme throughout the parts I read of hard work and respect for those that do.

This was a decent book but the writing quality was a tad weak. I thought he picked interesting people to biography and his research unearthed some interesting facts about them but I just felt as though it would have been much better if authored by someone with stronger writing skills.

Some people may enjoy the book more than me. I did not care for the style of writing.
