    Amazing

    I would have initially given this book 4 stars, but the more I reflect on what I read, I find myself enjoying the book more and more. The style in which it was written was amazingly ahead of its time. There is almost a foreshadowing of the text messaging that is found on-line and on cell phones. This book should be approached with an open mind. The auther allows the reader to be an active participant with the text.
