  1. Em geral é um livro muito bom. Alguns capítulos são bastante esclarecedores, como o que fala sobre desperdício (melhor de todos) e sobre velocidade.

  5. I have read Russian version of this book and frankly speaking the translation is awful. The book has been translated unprofessionaly and consists of grammatical errors, typos and “hard-to-read-and-understand-sentences”.
