too many words and a poor ending
on January 21, 2014
The author took too much time to delve into tangential topics. The concept of the book was at first interesting, but the delivery was poorly done. The author seems to have done much research on the main content of the book, but then ends with a warning on global warming? Sorry, but there is no proof that it, in fact, exists. What is true is that data has been suppressed and falsified to support the desired outcome of a group of people who are acquiring huge fortunes making the world believe that the industrialized world is killing the planet. Do you really think that Al Gore cares about a carbon foot print when he uses his private jet to travel to and from his multiple homes???
This being said, I would recommend the book for some of the interesting facts about the house and the origin of certain familiar object, words, and customs.
