I bought the book after Nassim Taleb mentioned it in an interview and am glad I did. My (print) copy was actually one of the new books digitized Google Books from the University of Michigan Library. However, books like these are hard to read linearly, since the exhortations tend to blur together after too many in a row. I like to read the whole thing cover to cover, marking the ones that catch my immediate attention and then when I return back to them later they are like relay points into the text. It ought to take several tours before you've been able to get to all the pages with a fresh mind. Filed under "life."
I guess that is on me since the series is called "Kessinger Legacy Reprints" after all. Hopefully the pictures I am adding here will clarify what this book actually looks like to other potential buyers.
The current price of $15 seems rather pricey for the content and quality of the book in my opinion.
