Each article picks one arresting idea and pushes it hard—some farther than warranted. Frazier is a bit of an acquired taste. Furthermore, because he tries so hard each time, he has no simple failures; the essays that go wrong are impressive train-wrecks. Some of the articles here may not have the same punch as those in Dating Your Mom, but it's still worth reading if you like his other work.
