Did anyone actually read this?
on July 10, 2012
I read this book over a period of a few days, and while the subject matter was interesting, I had several complaints.
-It was interesting to learn how the mammal brain functions.
-Every single page in the book had a punctuation, spelling, or grammatical error. Some sentences were missing key words and others had the same word randomly inserted in multiple places for no reason. These constant errors made the book difficult to read. Its pretty obvious she never hired an editor for this work.
-The tone used in the book made me feel as though I was a not very bright 5 year old. Her language is uninspired and repetitive. You can only use the words good, bad, happy, and unhappy so many times before they completely lose meaning.
-Her author bio at the end of the book was oddly free of errors. It seems like she put ll her energy and thought into writing those ten pages rather then the body of the book.
So, three stars because while it was interesting, the tone and lack of an editor really ruined the experience for me. If I hadn't paid full price for this book, I would not have finished it.
