Why: I’m sure you’ve heard of not judging a book by its cover. How about not judging a book by its title? I think that this has a ridiculous title, and it is one of the strongest reasons I feel the National Book Awards are inferior to most book awards. But what the hey, I am collecting them now. I can now feel one of my friends laughing at me. He might even predict that this could be the book that would change my life. I don’t know. I have to read it to find out.

How much: Php 45.00
