    Worthwhile non-Automotive Read

    On my son's advice, I just finished reading this non-fiction title:



    This is an excellent read by a young man who is imminently qualified to write on the topic. He well-defines the phrase, "Been There, Done That." Insightful beyond what any "outsider" could hope to produce.

    The book has been reviewed extensively, but don't go by any reviews you read. It doesn't take too long to read and provides a unique window into the topic.

    Highly recommended. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    Funny enough, I heard about the book because I read an Op-Ed piece that the author wrote for the New York Times. I stumbled on it completely by chance. I'd made a note to check out hillbilly elegy and it seems like the universe is sending me a gentle reminder. I'm new around this forum btw, just so I don't look like some random stranger commenting on your thread. Thanks for the book suggestion though, will definitely give it a read
