In this book Author George Manus has collected 1001 WORDS FOR THE ROAD from his series of 10 books by the same name, which in both format and content are well suited as reading matter while travelling. Each of the 10 books are presenting short reflections and puns in both English and Norwegian.
He has named this book, FOOD for THOUGHT, with subtitle, 1001 short reflections. It contains only the English reflections. The table of contents which is in alphabetical order provides easy access to his 1001 reflections. Most of them have been written over the past few years, while some were put on paper already back in the late 1980s.
He is fully aware that quantity does not in any way mean quality, but as he says, who judges good from less good and bad? If adopted literary norms are applied, I suppose it is simple, but if one isn't to judge based on given norms, I suppose it becomes a question of who likes what. If you accept that everyone is right based on their prerequisites, which is hard to deny, maybe you end up with something for everyone?
He says that all his short reflection are expressions of his spontaneous thoughts and opinions, based on his prerequisites when they were written.
