In the book, the author chronicles the regrettable consequences of his decision to cultivate marijuana on a commercial level. Goodreads called the book, an "engaging blend of metaphysics, marijuana, and midlife crisis."[1] A panel of Wilfrid Laurier University judges called Poole's writing, "sheer competence".[2]
