Maxims Minimus: Reflections in Microstyle

0 Reviews
Maxims Minimus is the sedimentation of over forty years of experience in teaching, writing, and treating patients. As many other poets, T. Byram Karasu dares to be just so clear, and no clearer. Thus, Dr. Karasu’s Maxims is well suited for this age of Twitter and text messages. He says, “Anything that cannot be said in 140 characters (or in 140 seconds) is not particularly worth saying.” This book is Dr. Karasu’s reflections about loving, working, living, dying, and everything else—his philosophy of life expressed in microstyle.
