What People Are Saying qHilarious views on college and beyond. This book is a great selection of laugh-out-loud columns not just about the craziness of college but also life in general. Tales of his wild college adventures were hilarious and had me reliving my own. But David Jakielo also easily manages to make topics such as recycling, plagiarism and the Democratic presidential caucuses funny and entertaining. The column in which David grows a beard to q go against the trend and embrace his body hairq had me stopping to wipe the tears from my eyes.
