Reviewer's Note: I will be making a general review at the end of this series, so as not to make the same comments about each installment over and over. Each "mini-review" will just contain my favorite insights, quotes or definitions. Or maybe a comment that couldn't wait for the overall wrap-up/review when I finish Book 13.

Favorite insight: "Stealing, of course, is a crime, and a very impolite thing to do. But like most impolite things, it is excusable under certain circumstances. Stealing is not excusable if, for instance, you are in a museum and you decide that a certain painting would look better in your house, and you simply grab the painting and take it there. But if you were a very, very hungry, and you had no way of obtaining money, it might be excusable to grab the painting, take it to your house, and eat it."
