Don't Get Too Comfortable: The Indignities of Coach Class, The Torments of Low Thread Count, The Never- Ending Quest for Artisanal Olive Oil, and Other First World Problems

Don't Get Too Comfortable: The Indignities of Coach Class, The Torments of Low Thread Count, The Never- Ending Quest for Artisanal Olive Oil, and Other First World Problems - David Rakoff Reading this book after the recent death of David Rakoff has been bittersweet. His was a terrifically observative mind that found the ridiculous in much of our society and conveyed his thoughts humorously, often with bite. I loved this book. I loved his rant about Barbara Bush in the book's beginning chapter, knowing that I had discovered a kindred spirit. A completely wonderful book for those of us who see the darker side of life with a sense of humor and bravado.
