Possibly the Best Descision I've Ever Made

I had no idea what I was in for that fateful day when I picked this book off of the shelf. It's a classic in every sense of the word, and ahead of its time. I think that every aspect of this is amazingly and accurately written and it is perfect. I highly recommend this. The content may be challenging, as it's a dense book with lots of meaning to it. In fact, it took me two reads to fully comprehend its meaning and even still with each read I gain something new.
