Pros:

  • Loved Meredith’s authenticity. With some memoirs, it seems like only the ‘good’ and ‘Interesting’ bits are kept in the book, but his seemed real and not overly edited
  • It wasn’t a 297429 page autobiography. It is a memoir in every sense of the word and it’s an interesting read that can be finished in about 2 and a half hours, depending on how fast you read.
  • Made me want to read more by Meredith. Which is a bummer because I don’t think he’s written anything else since this memoir.

Cons:

  • None (yay!)

Cierra Approved? Yes. Especially if you’re looking for a good memoir that won’t bore you.
