The last time I was in London I stood in a book store looking at this book, wondering if I should buy it. At a price of £8 I decided it was too much for a short book which, once read, you couldn't do anything with rather than leave in the bathroom for guests to peruse. So a while later I borrowed it from the library.
While somewhat entertaining I didn't get the point of this book. Campbell might as well just have put the quotes on her blog. That format would have fit the content much better. The 119 pages
Now obviously, a lot of books don't fill out those criteria despite being longer and containing plots and such. But like I said, this book - it should have stayed as a blog. Besides scraping in some money, I see no reason for publishing the quotes. And why a second book is being published, is beyond me.
