That being said, I received the book and am unable to read it. Unable.
IF YOU ARE OVER 40, PLEASE KNOW THAT THE FONT USED TO PRINT THIS BOOK APPEARS TO BE A SIZE 6 AT THE MAX. Maybe a 4!!
Yes, the print is so damnably small that anyone over 40 or so will be either hard pressed to read it at all, or just unable to deal with the headaches of it. That means also that anyone old enough to have toured the beautiful environs of Southeast Asia in the 60s, who presumably might enjoy reading the book, will either have to forego it, or, if they want the headaches, use one of those page size plastic magnifying lenses. Frankly, reading an entire book that way would not be worth the effort for me.
So - I will pass the book on to someone else who can handle the tiny type, and will take everyone's word that it is a good one.
But for the author, I would say - Kind sir, if you ever have another printing of your book, please ask for a font size of 10 or 12 so that you can have a much larger audience and a larger buying public. That would be a win / win.
