    1. This is an amazing book, it might just be exactly the book that will unify all peoples and end all conflicts of the human condition. I do not know as the font defeated me. I can't read it.At some point I might buy an electronic version of this series though to be honest I do not have an issue with the font used for any of Oxford Press's Very Short Introductions.
