It really is a great read and the guy has a way with words also. So although its a LONG read, its kept interesting with quips like:

Great way of putting it... For anyone else who wants to know what it means, it came to be from the TV show Happy Days last-gasp effort to succeed again after years of being number 1.
Jumping the shark is an idiom, first employed to describe a moment in the evolution of a television show when it begins a decline in quality that is beyond recovery.
