This book well, at least the first 5 or 6 essays, are nothing more than people complaining about how tough it is to be a farmer. There is all of this work to do, there are all of these deadlines, there are so many things to juggle, being a farmer is far more difficult than they ever imagined. "Here is a typical day in my life, look how hard it is." Again and again and again. I may revisit the book, or maybe when I begin farming this book will in some way be therapeutic as I'll be comforted by others that have also walked this difficult path. Who knows. But, for someone that has worked in construction, lived in Central America for half a decade, and now works in a blue collar job, the last thing that I want to do at the end of a long day is sit through page after page of complaining.
An honest book.
