I found this book written solely in the form of lists to be compulsively readable. The lists were divided into chapters with recurring themes like the budget, shopping list, how to get out of debt, plans to commit a heist (facepalm), discovered nuggets of wisdom, texting conversations, and more. . . His list of items to share with his child had me misty-eyed and his Twenty-One Truths About Love included this gem at #1: "Real love means always being good enough in the eyes of the person who loves you most but never being good enough for them in your own eyes." Dan struggles and overcomes, but he has to ask for help! One of my favorite recurring themes was his growing relationship with Bill, a Vietnam Vet he meets at a bingo hall. A reminder that sharing our life between generations is a blessing not always given the appreciation it should. I also love, love, love the cover! My one disappointment in this book was the number of times the "F" word was dropped. For me to use that word in daily conversation, my house would have to be on fire. Just saying. . .
