Outlook for Pencil Sharpeners

This book by Philip Parker seems like a bargain for only $795, but since it doesn't discuss letter handling machines, I'm going to have to pass:

Patty, you beat me to the punch! I was just about ready to click on "send it NOW" when I notice that it was only paperback. :( What a shame! It would have made one hell of a conversation piece at the local nut house the wife would have committed me to.

Hmmm. There are no customer reviews on Amazon. I wonder why.

That NYTimes article is essential for understanding this book and, frankly, what an asshole the "author," Phillip M. Parker, must be for passing this data-dump off as original work.

Very convenient.

Awesome comments. I found the third one to be the most compelling.

LOL. I meant the comments on the book on Amazon.com. But you're right -- Expat is riveting.
