A silly book
on January 27, 2007
The hype for this book is ridiculous. It is nothing more than a random compilation of rather vaccuous conventional wisdon in over-simplified text, useful maybe for a not-too-bright early teenager, but useless for any reasonable sophisticated Amazon subscriber type person. It is not even fun to browse, its advice is often totally off-base, and its editorial decisions in deciding what to include are unfathomable.
Physically. a "door-stop" size book in a screaming yellow dust jacket, it deserves neither the large space or prominent display it is yelling for; the Times should be ashamed of itself.
