I understand your thoughts on my repost of the globes history book, however two things come to mind…
1) Amazon is not the devil; see here.
2) Some people will only trust Amazon enough to purchase the book online, and that (decidedly much smaller) text link seems another way to get sales for the book.
I’m posting this publicly as I’d love to hear from others on the subject (especially those who read the article at the “see here” link - in its entirety).
