I'm with several other reviewers that this book starts really good, funny with an enjoyable voice of Mike and that after some time, might be around the middle, it lost it's steam. Yes, the flowery speech isn't really to my liking as well, but it didn't get on my nerves that much. Much more annoying for me was that the author had an obvious weakness for adding stuff like thoughts, observations in brackets. I tried the search-function on my kindle to have an idea of how many of that were in this book, but alas it got frozen.
The last, I think 20% were rather rushed.
Strong 3 stars.
