Book: Losing Everything by David Lozell Martin
About: Martin's memoir about losing his money, wife, health and sanity.
Pros: Extremely well written. I looked forward to picking it up again whenever I stopped reading. Martin's story is wonderfully engaging and doesn't beg beg the reader for pity.
Cons: Last chapters of advice and people he remembers don't really fit with the rest of the book, leaving the end of the book a bit of a letdown.
