Comments in the margins of the worst book ever written

Author:
  • Define?
  • Mention who this is?
  • Does this term require definition?
  • From Tennyson's "Charge of the Light Brigade"
  • Define?
  • Define
  • What you describe doesn't sound like a step
  • 4 isn’t a step either, just a state of being
  • Mention of Japanese word doesn't really add anything
  • Change b/c these things aren't criteria
  • You don't really set a standard for a goal -- the goal remains the same + you work toward it
  • What is this?
  • By def. a thing can't be more or less average
  • Comparing Sam Walton to Jesus is a bit much

The worst book ever written is about Wal-Mart. Maybe that's not so surprising.
