    1. A very gifted writer with sidesplittingly funny stories to tell. I am glad I read this book while in the privacy of my own home so as not to make a fool of myself by laughing hysterically! Highly, highly recommend for the quality and style of writing as well as the material. It just doesn't get old! It is a quick, easy read that will keep you in stitches.

    2. This book is hard to put down, it made me laugh out loud (to some funny looks from passersby!)d even if you don't personally have an attention disorder, I guarantee you will find yourself thinking this explains a lot about that weird kid you knew growing up!

    3. I saved this book to read on days when I needed a good laugh. Definitely did it's job. Look forward to reading the next one.
