I was really excited when I saw this book at the library. I'm always looking for books to add to my queue, and one of my librarian friends recommended the book to me. The problem, for me, with this sort of book, is that it all comes down to taste. My tastes don't really line up with the author's so it wasn't really that useful. In addition, I found it a bit frustrating that the blurbs about each recommendation were so short. I found myself having to look up every title, which isn't the most efficient use time! I wouldn't recommend this book, or its sequel (which I checked out at the same time.) There are far better recommendations available online!
