What Is This Book About?

Great question. The answer is so splendidly simple. This book is about anything, everything and nothing. It is an ideal companion on a bus or train, where regular interruptions are guaranteed as every part of this book is very, very short. Ideal also for parents of young children who get interrupted a lot by screaming, crying and toilet training. Great too for those with a limited attention span.

Another terrific attribute of this book is that it is either cheap or free. This A or B choice is yours depending on where you source the book from. If you had to choose option A, sorry it wasn't my fault. But anyway, cheap isn't so bad.

While on this subject, I should point out that although this book is available in a format that kills forests, I would really be much happier if you get it in an electronic format. The reasoning is that no chainsaws are used in the process. No chlorine, bleach, potassium or nuclear material is dumped into the environment either as a result of paper manufacturing and therefore I can have a much clearer conscience.

Ok now to the book itself. This e-book contains the mindless meanderings of an ageing Australian male lost in the alpine paradise of Switzerland, which in itself is probably enough pollution.

If you have searched for the table of contents, you will have noticed that there isn't one. Why? Because there is just no rhyme, logic or theme at all to this book, so I didn't bother. The other reason is that as each short story captures my thoughts on any given day during the past year, and a bit, I couldn't decide on whether I should use alphabetical or chronological order. And I hate making decsions.

So get ready for a wild ride, or ask for a refund now and read no further.
