This is not to infer (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, 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 enriched by this tour de farce.
True to form, Reed illustrates Ambrose Bierce's definition of educational 'that which discloses to the wise and disguises from the fools their lack of understanding.'
Abundantly documented, endlessly subtle, hopelessly eccentric and deadly funny, the book blends history, sociology, literature, philosophy, etymology and even theology, all with a good laugh.
