Confessions of a Contractor - Richard Murphy

I really disliked this book. I finished it, but I didn't want to. Not liking it tho, is totally a matter of my taste in "storytelling".
This book doesn't read like a novel per se, it reads like a conversation. Some like that. The reviewer of People magazine loved this book. As do many on Paperback Swap. It just wasn't my cup of tea.
The story is of a Los Angeles contractor (based on his own actual experiences) who finds himself involved on different levels with his clients. I thought it would be my kinda story as I enjoy "reality" type books as well as reality tv. But again it read like he was talking to his bar buddies instead of me. The story would have been better if it was written differently.
