My rating: 3 of 5 stars
“Don’t Look Before You Leap” was entertaining and funny…David Webb, a pilot for American Airlines, shares with his readers stories beginning with his childhood, his growing-up and going away to school. He even throws in additional stories about his brothers and the trips that they made, his “veggie truck” and provides his readers with a pointer on how to get rich. These stories were entertaining, funny and full of life…I especially enjoyed “Bugs,” “HeMen” and “Getting Rich.” The opening actually starts out a little slow w/”Coming Clean,” and, sometimes, it feels as if the author is leading his readers off on a tangent without a straight, narrow path in mind such as in “Eye, Eye Sir” and “The Dress.”
However, the best seems to have been saved for last as “Bugs,” “HeMen” and “Getting Rich” were the last three stories of the book…I would definitely have to say that the author seems to have been building his readers to an ultimate climax…which they are still high on, and hopefully can continue with his next book, “This is NOT a Serious Book” which he announces at the end.
I would definitely recommend this book to readers who favor more books that are more anecdotal and funny.
I give it 3 stars.
