Don't be seduced by the 4* and 5* reviews - this book is rubbish, 15 Jan 2012
Having wasted 30 minutes of my life ploughing through 4 of these 6 short (in this context surely meaning "trivial", superficial" and possibly also "shallow" and "pointless")tales, I'm not going to waste even more by going into a detailed analysis of why this collection fails on every conceivable level. Enough then to act as a warning not to blithely click on the button saying "people who bought this also bought.....". Maybe those poor suckers were similarly disgusted to not invest even more effort in attempting to balance the unfathomably rave reviews awarded by others. Mine is not to judge, and your mileage may vary, but all I'll say is that when I got to the end of the "baseball" claptrap, I actually felt violent anger towards the clown that had occupied my precious time with this arrant nonsense. Don't trust the reviews is my message, I guess. The only consolation is that having downloaded the Kindle version, at least no trees suffered.
