More > enlightening, edifying, amusing, aggrandizing, and perhaps even annoying (in that uncomfortable way that the truth can sting like a mosquito). But is never boring. "In 1929, J.

This whimsical book is court jester's divinely foolish and inspired attempt to share this most profound and illusive truth with anyone who will listen." - Michael Mendizza< Less
