To see this great work which so deeply influences the development of man and time and thought throughout the ages rated a three overall is a travesty. You are not truly educated without exploring this exceptional work with a guide of great learning and heart.

What is this? what everyone else said is true. This is is ridiculous, no table on contents, no seperation of the different books, there seems to be a lot of comentary between. This doens't make any sense
