  1. Good morning, coleagues
    Guess we all have liked a lot this book from the beginning, as the letter size is large and the number of pages is low … jejeje
    The author … uses short sentences, likes human behaviour and doesn’t pretend to impress us with an incredible story neither deep philosophy. But they are there, and the merit is his.
    The story … starts humble and simple, but becomes deep and mental as pages go by.
    A pleasure to read slow …
    Sebastian.
