I heard or rather read about Josh Sundquist a few years ago, after his memoirs 'just don't fall' were published.
Though I didn't write a review on this book, as back then my blog was not existing yet, it's a great inspiring story about a young boy loosing a leg due to cancer, battling cancer and going on with his life.
In early 2016 Josh Sundquist's second book was published as paperback 'we should hang out sometime' (I believe the hardcover version already dates Dec.2014).
So what is this book about?
After realizing at age 25 that he never had a girlfriend, though there had been some attempts, Josh decides to track down all the girls he tried to date, to analyse what had happened and why it didn't work out.
Though the author gave the book the annotation 'embarrassingly, a true story', and the word embarrassing certainly applies to certain moments he went through, I consider the book being a wonderful continuation of Josh Sundquist's memoirs.
Readers are getting to know what Josh had been through in High School and College, all united in a funny concept of writing a book with some hilarious parts.
The book is written in short chapters, showing for each 'failed relationship' the background, than the hypothesis on what went wrong, followed by the investigation including asking the girl in question directly (years later).
Finally the author resumes the results of investigation before coming to a happy end.
I really loved this book and highly recommend both books by Josh Sundquist to everybody.
I can't help but publish this section from the books to show you what I mean by 'hilarious parts':
"I'll give you an example. One time I was wearing my artificial leg, and I was talking to this girl about what it was made out of, how it worked, all that. She looked down at the prosthesis, and she was like 'is the foot fake, too?' "
