1.0 out of 5 stars Mind-blowingly dull, 21 Oct. 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vitamin K2 and the Calcium Paradox: How a Little-Known Vitamin Could Save Your Life (Paperback)
While the subject may be important - what could have been written in a pamphlet or even booklet has turned into a dreary repetitive poorly written mind numbingly dull...

But then I guess you wouldn't be able to charge £17 for it.

An astonishingly irrelevant review. The style of the book is very good and its very readable. Most North American writers don't even come close to this Canadian (?) woman's fluency and command of English. Secondly it is not repetitive: the author's case is well laid and easily understood (except maybe for the "hard-of-understanding").

I think this reviewer is being mischievous and I hope it is an innocent mistake on his part.

When someone does not share the same opinion as yourself; this does not make them mischievous. And because you see my review as irrelevant, this does not absolutely define it so for all and others. I have seen similar criticisms of this book elsewhere. Pamphlet or booklet with the essential knowledge in a nutshell would have done me. Not everyone wants to read a whole book on how to change a car tyre; they just want the essentials. Occupied by your assumptions you overlooked that I acknowledge the apparent validity of the subject. Hope your astonishment subsides.

If you wanted something brief you can take note of the length of the book before buying it. This book covers the subject carefully and read carefully will not be found to be padded or overwritten.

I withdraw the "mischievous" bit.

You will note that the word 'review' is actually re and view. This is not a forum about who is right or wrong. I have expressed a view. You don't have to like it or agree with it; but in reality it remains my view. And simply expressing a personal view, rather than telling everyone else their different view is wrong was the purpose of my view.

Yes, I noted the length of the book and would not have criticized its volumes had I found it engaging and not repetitive and padded out.
