This author is completely horrid.
Think a pompous stuffed shirt who is convinced that he is the ultimate personage on the authority of books, and he dared to "read dangerously" because...I'm actually at a lost as to why this title was chosen. Perhaps because "Arrogant self-aware bookseller reads 50 books and talks down to the readers about them" is too long and wordy, though more true.
There was also the thing of footnotes, on every page. I get wanting to explain something that might seem complicated to "those who might not understand" but to have them on every page where they serve no purpose except to continue a part of his thought process? (You are not using them correctly dude)
If you can't tell, I really had a hard time with this book. If you like it, cheers, but it's so not for me.

Sorry: not for me.

Not one for the ages. Could have been cut by 1/3. The subject matter of the bk is more lovable than Miller's handling of it.
