I found this book ("100 Great Leaders") on the table outside the store:
I guess for only $3 you could only expect great educational stuff, such as an article about Augusts (Roman Emperor who "ended a century of civil wars and gave Rome an era of peace, prosperity, and imperial greatness, known as the Pax Romana") with a picture of Adolf instead (including the wrong caption). Yes, that Adolf whose "racial policies had culminated in a genocide of approximately eleven million people, including about six million Jews, in what is now known as the Holocaust":
I expected to be in a world where I wouldn't have to read the books before my kids do, to make sure it's not full of wrong stuff. But it looks like I do have to keep an eye out for this too...
I wonder if Whitcoulls wouldn't do better than sell this book by simply removing it from the tables. At $3 each, it would be a great service to culture. And really, what could you expect from a cheap book? Quality costs...
