Vynikající manifest da-da, který se v těch nejodvážnějších momentech blížil pocitům, kdy si ve tři ráno čtu na záchodě návod k použití WC Ducku v maďarštině. Naštěstí kniha obsahuje i vysvětlivky (čítající ještě víc stran než samotný text), který tento už tak kouzelný blábol (kompliment) ještě dovysvětlily a kupodivu jej i víceméně objasnily. Asi jako by Vám David Lynch udělal lobotomii pomocí staršího čísla Playboye. Dal bych i pět hvězd, ale dneska jsem tvrďák.
