    William Wood s unusual book is a real gem Others have already said that it is written in an unusual style, using the you instead of I as if the author is talking to himself throughout, and about how one can dip in at any point of the book instead of reading from cover to cover What I found is that this is a beautifully written book, at times poetic, at times wryly humorous The author s pleasures are as diverse as a child s smile, silence, a log fire or remembered fragments from his many journeys to far away lands I found it thought provoking and it made me contemplate the simple things in my own life that give me pleasure Some passages were so poignant or evocative that I think they will stay with me long after I ve finished reading it and this book is destined to become one of my own small pleasures or treasures.
