There's an ad that scrolls this screen from Amazon for a book called Sundae's Best.

I highly recommend not wasting your money on this one. I couldn't finish it as the author drags out every little scrap of info they can, and then adds more just to make sure you get annoyed.

Case in point, at some point in the book it takes the time to list some ingredients and flavors used for sodas. This wouldn't be so bad as a bulleted list, but instead it's a full page of coma seperated flavors.

There's other parts in the book that list patent numbers for some sort of items, and goes on for a full paragraph listing all the patent numbers used...I think it's pretty safe to say, no one cares.

Usually one would say there must have been something good about the book that I'm sitting here a year later typing about it.

Sorry, not in this case, the book left me so turned off I still to this day can't fathom why so much "information" was shoved into a book. I would have been better off reading the index because that's how it felt like it was laid out.

D-, would be an F, but I read more than 10 pages. So something caught my interest. That, or I was trying to read through all the details to find something interesting.

Ouch... The ads are displayed based on the key phrase "root beer", but I'll see if it can be removed.
