3.0 out of 5 stars Terrible print, 9 April 2009
This review is from: Why Evolution is True (Hardcover)
I;d love to have read this book - however from the first opening I couldn't accept the terrible quality of the (photographic) printing and the glossy and, frankly, stinking paper used in this print. Like a cheap (I mean really cheap) magazine. What a shame. I can only hope that the paperback, when it comes, will be printed in normal pulp style - proper print, no nasty smell.

I cannot understand this negative reaction. For me the book is an affordable hardback delight: well illustrated and yes glossy. Smelly? No, not my copy sir!

Try review the content of the book and not what you think of the production value of it.

@Clive. I think John Basham was holding the book to close to his ass.

Or it was his way of saying that he understood bugger all of what was written in this excellent book?

Neither, thank you gents.

My criticism (directed at the publishers) was based on the cheap and poor production values of the book, rather than the contents. Believe it or not, these are things that potential buyers (and I assume, therefore, publishers) are interested in. I'm sorry if that subtlety escaped you both. I look forward to reading your own reviews which I'm sure will be very entertaining coming from people who use such mature and high-brow language as "ass" and "bugger all".

I think you have taken review of the book a little too literally.
