writing tip #1404:

keep it short, once people (who may or may not be your uncle john) get their hands on the book and read it (and they are probably so stupid and ignorant that they will judge it by the first few pages, it did get god dam better john!!!!) it is likely to be used as a projectile or hand held weapon and it is best for your own safety that it is as light as possible
