Good story, well narrated.
balanced.
Admits errors as well as cheering successes.

I was told this was a good read, so I bought it.
A few chapters in, the hugely deep detail killed it for me.
I mean you can spend a few lines desctibing, for example, a shirt, if it is relevant.
In this book not only does it go into details of that 'shirt', but he gets into each button of said shirt, as well as each buttonhole, and each hole into which the button is stitched to the shirt.
Detail to the point of drowning in minutae.
I gave up.
I am sure there is some good somewhere, but it didn't hold it for me.

great story narration could be better.
