When was this written? It sounds really old to me...

I like this quote, "Understanding is a two-way operation; learning doesn't consist in being an empty receptacle"

The marking tips ok...nothing exceptional, but they'll help!

This guy sounds like he really loves his books!

He doesn't mention Anal Tabs....That basically says it all. Other than that, the distinction he makes between book "owners" I found fairly interesting.
