Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This book presents a provocatively, outrageously assertive exposure of fools in their not infrequently bizarre manifestations, the object being to leave no halfwits behind. Abundantly documented, endlessly subtle, hopelessly eccentric, deadly funny. Observing fools is a self-congratulatory gesture that makes even a fool believe that he is worthy and valuable, whereas he’s likely to be little more than a blockhead who, over a lifetime, in all probability has done little or nothing productive in any sense whatsoever. This is not to infer (by which we mean to surmise, imply or even hint) that either the author or his readership is in any demonstrable sense of the word foolish, now or at any other time. After all (and let’s be plain on this point), no fool would write a book like this, and no fool would read it. Precisely who does read it is a discretely personal decision we leave to those gifted with more than ordinarily inquiring minds. Indeed, those who elect to come along for the ride are likely to find their minds piqued, tickled and even enriched by this tour de farce led by a writer who knows a thing or two about fast cars and who can sail rings around the average boater who doesn't really know which way the wind is blowing.
