This is a good book. I haven't read it but anyone can tell by the title that it is a good book . It's not "The Good Book" but nevertheless (I love that word, I don't know why they don't make more words out of 3 random words) ... Now where was I ? That "nevertheless" completely threw me off. Oh yes, I was saying that it is not "The Good Book" but it is a good book , nevertheless. See you can throw that word in at the end of many sentences. There seems to be a bit of rambling around with the 4 Introductions and I could see why that might throw some people off. Now , I know that most of you are saying "hey, I thought you said you never read the book !" and you would be right. Does it really count if you only read the bits up to the start of Chapter 1 ? Because that's what I did. And I scrolled forward to the end and found that about half the book is actually online . I guess that's what Google Books thinks is "fair use". They probably could have just put quotes around the whole text and cited the book as a reference and stayed out of the long arms of the law in Google Land. So anyway, you should buy this book . Just because I didn't buy it, I can tell how long it takes to write this much drivel and I know that the author put in many minutes away from watching Seinfeld reruns to make this book available to your, his adoring public. If you can't see your way to do that, I would suggest that you read the first half online then wait a 7 minutes until you have forgotten it and they read it again. I'm exaggerating - it will only take 3 minutes to forget. You will have wasted the same amount of time and still have the money to waste on something else.
