Do you think you would need more than one page to summarise your learning from the book?

You could have always read any of the articles online, where you would have also had more choice.

    Probably, although I haven't actually done that. Even if it were only one page, I think that would make it worthwhile to me.
    "You could have always read any of the articles online, where you would have also had more choice."
    I guess so, but reading online tends to give me a headache, and I like to read in bed which I can't do easily with my machine (and printing out articles tends to be more expensive for me than buying a book.)
    I wasn't really attempting to debate the OP's views; I had enjoyed reading the book and thought another opinion might be of interest.

      I completely agree. I'm a big fan of paper and reading in places away from screens. I am a big fan of multiple reviews for books, it gives a broader picture. Interested in knocking one up?

        Perhaps in the future; I'm rather overloaded now. (There are several books I was thinking of reviewing.)
