Most people won t spend as much time as I did on this book Most people don t spend nearly as much time as they ought to do on poetry We treat it like prose but let s be honest most of us don t spend nearly as much time on prose as it deserves The reason in both cases is lack of time or not so much lack of time but the insistence on trying to read books than we can manage in the time we have available to us to do the job properly On my first cursory read through this collection I didn t like it at all but I know Brad in that Internetty way you get to know people these days and I d said I d review the book and so I persevered where normally I would ve given up Of course in taking making the time to read the book properly an entire new universe appeared before me It s not a perfect universe but it is an interesting one and I certainly don t feel that my time was wasted But if your time is limited precious but you think you might want to risk a few bucks on some guy from the Great Plains then check out the article on my blog where I detail my reading experience You can call it a review if you like but it really is simply a record of what I got out of it which was a helluva lot You won t remember it all hell, I don t remember it all so buy the book while it s fresh in your mind, stick on on a shelf for a few months and hopefully when you discover
