One or two good ideas, masked in a huge pile of pretention. Who curates a conversation ffs?! My copy is annotated with my dad's great comments, which include "crummy" for J.-C.C.'s Vishnu journey through the internet. RU4RL!
Plus, they did very little to argue against the annihilation of the book. It still appears to me that all future paper books will start to dissolve in favour of digital copies, while if you are a book collector you will continue to collect old books... duh.
Here are some alternative titles for the book:
"Old Farts Spoiler Books You Haven't Read Yet."
"Umberto Eco Sells You Umberto Eco's 'The Name Of The Rose'"
"Blah Blah Something About Jesus"
"Could Do Better"
