    1. I ve now read this twice Some of the aphorisms still seem like gobbledygook, but less so the second time It s a little cutesy, and that seems to be what s turned off most of the people I ve talked to But many of the maxims are startlingly good, and if it is cutesy on the whole, than it is cuteseyness of the highest possible level Very quotable too.
