wordy repetetive rambling
on 25 February 2012
This was a present by my optimistic partner who dislikes my realistic approach to life. I have tried to read it, honestly, but why would I, it doesn't tell me anything I don't already know, or I would know if I cared to bother to spend my time to pondering on why some people are more optimistic than others. According to Ms. Sharot most people are optimistic, good. It's an American book, I have the greatest respect for Americans, but they do seem to enjoy using fifty words when one would do, this book is no exception. It could have probably been a quarter of the length, said just as much, and been easier to read. Sorry, but I havent got enough time in my life to waste it on this. However, the optimist outcome of my having received this book is that I shall take it to a charity booksale next month and hopefully raise a little money for charity!
