Certainly is aptly named, that's for sure. While a little bogged with details in the beginning, the story finds its feet quickly and then clips along. Tom is not a particularly likable guy, life coming easy to him as he gets high and resents the incredible opportunities set at his feet. It feels like a 'careful what you wish for' story, as his work is rejected and he still throws away a great set-up to go dream chasing. I did find it odd that no one mentioned to Tom that he could write just fine while having an actual, profitable career and that in fact the connections he made getting to a high level in any field would be helpful trying to get published later.

A good, quick read. I always enjoy a story where the main character kind of irks you.
