Shelves: non-fiction
Anybody who wants to read this book should be advised that this is an academic paper. Although I liked the idea presented in this publication, I really didn't like the writing. I wasn't expecting anything like this (if I did I wouldn't start reading) and lost most of the interest after a few paragraphs. After half of the book I found myself not really paying attention to what I was reading. Clearly such writing isn't meant for me.
