What baffles me is that-- even though he seems to be from somewhere where English isn't the first language, surely that place has products, and money, and people who want to know what the products are before they give their money? I imagine store shelves filled with cans and boxes labeled only "Food!" and bottles labled only "Drink!", roads with vehicles branded only "Car!", movie listings that say only "give us 10 bucks to watch our movie, that's marketing, baby!" What part of the world do people buy products with no description, to the point that he is morally outraged to be asked for one?

It gave me an idea, though-- I should try an experiment in truth in advertising-- I should write something and put it on Amazon (or some other site that sells ebooks) and call it Give Me 3 Bucks, Moron! with no further info and see how many people decide that they have to see what that is...

Edited to add-- I just figured it out, he must work for Apple!

No, I said that last because Apple expects people to buy anything they sell-- sight unseen-- just because they tell them to. And it works.

If I needed to read that book to understand how much my life "suck", I'm sure it would.

And, um, wow. I'm used to encounters with not-native-English-speakers, but normally they can manage basic capitalization and punctuation rules. And throwing insults at a public forum--one that's google-indexed--where you're advertising your wares... that's a *new* marketing tactic.

Maybe his book is some kind of tax writeoff, where he's claiming a certain amount of capital is tied up in creating it, and he *really* doesn't want it to sell?

Are you sure about that? Because in my experience the typical native-English-speaking internet user normally can't manage basic capitalization and punctuation rules. (And needs a remedial class in homonyms and homophones.)

Thank you all, gentlemen - and lady - for the great entertainment you provided me with your answers in this thread. When I saw the first post yesterday I almost reported it as spam. Now I'm very happy I didn't Do keep up the good work!

Reader discretion is advised :

I thought my membership will be blocked because of this thread ! but anyways now I have sometime to spare replying to you all . so without further ass-u-me ption .English is not my native language + I’m just an employee + this book is around 25 pages !! and sorry in advance if u felt insulted ! I didn’t realize some of you such Drama queens !!

Anyways nerdy no hard feelings because there is no entertainment without insulting your intelligence ! and I will keep confusing you all about my nonsense replies and waiting for your pathetic assumptions for fun ! I have just realized how people felt by keyboards assaults ! I think so far this thread brought some entertainment to your boring chats !!!! oohh didn’t I insult anybody !! then good .

You guys don't want to admit that your life suck! Spending your lives reading books, joining interesting conversations with strangers on internet, about moral values, ethics, concepts about right and wrong, having fun now and then... What's wrong with you people?

Gramps, I'm sure your book has about all the right ingredients (money, life, work) to be a almost masterpiece. Can you add a page or two about sex, so it's complete and covers everything humankind wanted to know for so many generations?

To everybody else: By reading this forum post I've just written you agree to send me 10 euro now! This is not a joke, me you life suck! Don't make me put this message on Amazon and charge you more! Thank you. Please?
