Reviews from Around the World
"As a library technician who often sees (but rarely has to deal with) the atrocities done to books on a regular basis, this made me laugh. I then had to show the book to all the other staff who all enjoyed it to varying degrees. It is a great book to use in starting a discussion on how to care for books or, if you care to take things a little deeper, how mistakes and accidents don't have to be detrimental." - Steven, goodreads
