The Dolphin's Tooth: A Decade In Search of Adventu&hellip by Bruce Kirkby
Somehow a signed copy landed on my desk at work years ago. I never read it, but kept it on my shelf for awhile. Finally as I ran out of books at home and money to buy new ones I decided to give this one a shot.... to say I was impressed is not giving this author's work justice. This IS a life changing read; it will make you think about your life, where you are in life, what you're doing, what your priorities are, and most importantly may give you the courage to change your life and get out of the office. Great work, Bruce. Looking forward to more from you in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie, Jan. 12 2011
Great movie, don't hesitate to buy it, especially on blu-ray. The acting is superb, the soundtrack by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross is amazing. There's simply nothing to hate about this film.

Yes, sometimes these items are cheaper elsewhere (like Wall-mart), but it's certainly a lot easier to click a couple buttons and have it shipped to my doorstep and not deal with the people, parking lots, etc. Sometimes that's easily worth an extra couple of bucks ("luxury tax"). Also, remember that you're reviewing the item not the seller (Amazon.ca) in this case, so don't give the item lower ratings because you think the item should be cheaper.

3.0 out of 5 stars Missing Pages 186-218, Dec 27 2010
Great book, until I got to the end of page 185 and it's missing pages 186-217. I've taken too long to get to reading it and now Amazon won't let me return it for a new copy. I'll have to find alternative means to get myself a new copy without forking out any more money.

Thank you to Amazon.ca, I received my new copy and all is well. Finished the book and will keep the rating as is. It wasn't that great at all, really. Wish the author was still alive though, I believe he was on to something....
