    Hey Guys. Just listened to your review and it was so spot on. I actually moved Goon Squad up on my list when I heard you were going to review it this week (see? You ARE like Oprah!) and I loved it but I was having trouble describing it to my friends. Jon's line about how this is like reading the 10 best excerpts from 10 screenplays nailed it. Reading this book is exactly like dipping in and out of a long movie but just at the 10 best scenes. I do think that some of the stories were stronger than others but there are some great images/ideas even in those "weaker" stories. I won't call out my favorites since Mark still needs to read it. As always – love the podcast!
