    I must confess I m predisposed to like this book because a dear friend gave it to me It is quite the strange little book, examining countless things I have taken for granted without ever questioning It looks at these things with a fresh eye, one that focuses on the brevity of the experience A very existentially minded encyclopedia Well worth a read, but I encourage you to read slowly, the longer you reflect the better it gets.
