"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

2. Though this edition is billed as 'The Complete Collection,' it omits 'Mary Poppins from A to Z' and 'Mary Poppins in the Kitchen.'
3. The physical book and layout are ugly and ungainly. The entire book is double-spaced, making it very hard to read. This edition seems as though it was designed by someone who likes looking at books, but not actually reading them.
4. The production is ghastly - I've barely touched the book, and already the back cover is peeling off, showing blank white cardboard beneath.
5. This edition includes an introduction by Cameron Mackintosh which is only 2 pages long, followed by a biography of Mackintosh that takes up an entire page! It just feels like the final straw making this whole mess extremely unfriendly to readers.
Save your pennies for the individual volumes, or the 'Mary Poppins: 80th Anniversary Collection' omnibus, which is well-designed, easy to read and includes all of Mary Shepard's wonderful illustrations at full-size!
