This was overall a very enjoyable anthology. The characters are 'people' one can actually 'see' in real life. Their situations are factual, things like what each of these men went through I could see happening to men out there.

This array of stories sucked me in... I liked they were so easy to fall into and feel like you were a part of the story itself—sign of good writing to me.

Probably the best anthology I've ever read. Each story was a little gem. Loved it.
