"The author is the complete master of non sequitur, and does not limit himself to an occasional word or phrase of complete irrelevancy, but throws in, gratis as it were, whole paragraphs and sometimes pages of material which seem to have nothing to do with the material at hand....Perhaps the book has entertainment value well worth its price. There is one thing for sure: like a defective postage stamp, there is no doubt that someday this little volume will become a collector's item...."
