So far this is shaping up to be a great book, however it is ridiculously small. I have 20/20 vision and I am struggling with it, it seems a lot smaller than other paperbacks and you need plenty of light to be able to read it or it looks as though ants have run through ink and run over the page. You really have to concentrate hard. Probably would have spent a bit more and got a bigger copy if I had known.
I cannot praise this book enough. Witty, insightful and entertaining. I was gripped from the very first page. There are so many lessons to be learnt and so much wisdom in its pages. My only criticism is with this print/edition - as the previous reviewer said, the book is small and the print is absolutely tiny. The font is the smallest I've ever seen. It's a real strain to try and read it. It would be good if Book Depository listed the dimensions of its books or at least noted that this is a "small print" as I would not have bought it if I had known.
Well guess what, I wanted to read this book so much, but I read the reviews and now, I will have to wait till it comes out in decent sized print. Publishers please note, consumers vote with their dollars!
