Too Much for Too Little May 24, 2003
I was excited to find this title, as it was exactly the information I was seeking. However, there is a reason there are no sample pages. No one would pay the asking price for the level of content found here. The entire book would fit in perhaps 25 pages total. Examples: Complete Text on Page 28 - "Beginning an archives is not difficult." Complete Text on Page 29 - "Inertia is the main problem." Complete Text on Page 37 - "Secretaries may have valuable suggestions." Each of these pages is mostly taken up with a cartoon. Most pages are a sentence or two with a cartoon. There IS useful information here, but the cutesy presentation needlessly pads the book and is not appropriate for the audience. The Book Summary, pp 142-151, is dense text, and contains probably 90% of the information covered in cartoons throughout the book. But the price is steep for nine pages.
