I've read Cooper's My Life On The Swingset and I listen to his podcast so I had an idea of what to expect. He's witty as well as personable and his writing style reflexes this. It's detailed in the right ways and at the same time has a conversational manner that is easy to keep interest. The characters are fleshed out very well and I care about them in the journey. It explains the perils and pitfalls of our lifestyle and answers the concerns many of us have faced in our own journey. I can't recommend this book enough. Enjoy.
