I loved this book! What a beautiful heart warming tale. I read it to my daughter, before she went to bed. It took us over a year because it is a very long book, but when it was over she said "Daddy can we read it again tomorrow?" to which I gladly nodded. What a pleasure this tome has brought into our lives.

I'm surprised that there are two reviews here (one 1-star, one 5-star) that are on opposite sides of the debate over whether this is a good book. They're missing the whole point. Author Philip M. Parker "...patented a method to automatically produce a set of similar books from a template which is filled with data from database and internet searches" (from Wikipedia). In other words, it's a book that's essentially computer-generated; one might say, written by a computer. Therefore, before any debate can be had on the book itself (if such a debate can, in fact, be had at all) one has to rate the methodology--or software--or rules--by which the book itself was created. On that front (and having skimmed through it) I rate it a three. Certainly it's a bad, bad book by any scientific or literary measure. But the ability to piece together existing articles into a quasi-cohesive and understandable tome is the first step toward truly computer generated non-fiction. Hopefully future "books" will take into account reader comprehension, trends, etc. so as to be a little further along on the meter from computer-compiled single-topic mish mosh toward insightful cohesive non-fiction that pieces together multiple articles not as closely related separate entities but further COMBINES said articles by pulling relevant and important information from each and writing it's own articles and (maybe someday) even drawing its own conclusions. Once that is accomplished, the days of computer-generated fiction (i.e. computer-generated art) cannot be far behind. And soon after that (and I say this at the risk of offending those who believe that art requires consciousness) perhaps real artificial intelligence and consciousness.

Yes, it's boring. OK - skim the abstract. He's using 60mg containers as a example to make a point about latent demand. He's not saying there's a real world demand for 0.006g of fromage frais.

Sure, it's a bit weird, but don't give reviews saying how stupid the study if you don't understand the point.

A 60 milligram container would be 1/16 of a gram, or about 1/450 of an ounce. I can tell you exactly what the market outlook is for 60mg containers of fromage frais - none. There is no market outlook for 60mg containers of fromage frais, for the simple reason that they do not exist.
