Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lots and lots of political quotes in this paperback back. This book is a paperback and the type is rather small. Not as concise as I was hoping.
here's my original review which was disallowed, its sad that Amazon can't take any criticism or attempt to learn from it. what kind of organizations do that?
"This book is a rather unwieldy tome and not fun to read at all. The type is way too small and there are way too many quotes, some good, some bad and most unnecessary. This would greatly benefit from some serious editing, take the best 30 per cent of the quotes and lose the rest. Its difficult to cull through for a juicy quote and as such, hardly useful. Less quotes and bigger type might improve the enjoyment of this volume. The real problem with this book, however, is that Amazon is unable to ship it without damage. I returned two damaged copies of this book (the originally shipped copy and then its replacement) only to receive a third copy of this book once again damaged. is it really so hard to properly pack and ship a paperback book? I'd take a pass on this to be honest with you
