Silly and annoying.

  • By A Customer from Kelseyville CA USA on Saturday, February 14, 2015
  • Pros: The cover was pretty.
  • Cons: Just too frustrating. I wanted to learn about flying.
  • Review: Hated it. It was painful trying to sift through and keep the jokes and useful data separate. I ended up trying to read with a black sharpie in hand, crossing out the dribble. After two chapters of this, I had marked out a clear third of the text. Don't waste your time. I felt like I was being held hostage by a frustrated (and not funny) stand up wannabe/infomercial host.

Too Many Annoying Jokes - A Silly Book

  • By R. Lambert from Kelseyville, Ca. on Sunday, December 28, 2014
  • Pros: Beautiful Illustrations
  • Cons: Absoluteley silly text.
  • Review: I simply hated this book. Where I expected a professional but human approach to teaching the subject, what I found was piles and piles of senseless and unnecessary jokes that derailed my thought process while I tried to focus. Perhaps the real information is there, and I tried. I went so far as to take a Sharpie and "line out" all of the paragraphs of silliness and dribble. I lined out a full third of the text. This might be a good book for people who love watching Oprah, but for a serious student, I would advise looking elsewhere for a more professional and intelligent approach.
