review 1: Georgia Bragg has done it again. This book is simultaneously horrifying, hilarious, and informative. I learned a great deal, both about people and about making choices in general. The illustrations in the text are great, but the audio is dynamite; L.J. Ganser's narration is darn near flawless. Fantastic book!

... moreth. However, although I enjoyed it, I would probably would hesitate to pick up another book like How They Choked due to silliness. less
