How You Play The Game by Jimmy Gleacher

I bought this a few years ago, and read it without retaining anything.  It was a new idea, Guy Lit.  
I just flipped through it again trying to remember something, anything about it, held the hardcover book in my hands, read the inside cover, looked at the photo of the author, and read the recommendation by Gwyneth Paltrow on the back. Yeah, like I said read this few years ago without retaining anything.

This is about a guy who has had a bunch of bad relationships, not just with the women in his love life, but with his dad and the people around him in general. He has an affair with an older woman,  and hunts down myths of his neighbourhood.
The book is written like a bad paced script for a tv show. Short pages, or are they long paragraphs? with alot of point form speech. 
I just could not get into this story the first time around, trying to re-read it is not going to happen.

  1. Hi - stopping by and checking out your blog. I like your links! A lot of the links like Library Thing dont work with wordpress (what I use) so I envy those who can use them. Someday I will find a book one that works. :)

    I will be interested in your review of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

    Oh and thanks for adding me to your links. That is so nice! Happy Blogging!
