This is the only book i have ever thrown away through fear of someone else reading it. Thinking about it, perhaps i should have burnt it. It is not at all sympathic to the needs of ethnographers or other inductive researchers. Human geographers and anthropologists should look else where. The book will confuse more than it clarifies.
