    "It's easy to forget that Amazon even has competitors these days, but Barnes & Noble is still my go-to. I read a lot of novels, and love having bookshelves filled with books. B&N seems to send me coupons all the time, and if you're lucky enough to still have a physical B&N in your area, you can buy online and often go pick up the book to skip the wait on shipping. Great selection as well."

      "I loved reading these books to my daughter at night. We started when she was quite young, in part because we showed her an early adaptation of this book (it was on the BBC). So sweet! She grew up with that and then saw the most recent Hollywood adaptation. These books are still on her shelf (she's a teenager) and she loves them. I remember them from my own childhood, of course, so I hope that she passes them down to her children. The series is truly one of the best out there for kids."

      "For being written by someone who chose working instead of going to college, this book would make a wonderful university text comprising subjects as human relations, manufacturing processes, logic, astronomy and, obviously, economics. The ride within the factory feels like an exploration of a new, unknown universe accessible through the black hole of an entry ticket. I personally felt a virtuous circle from this book: It helped me appreciate the Tim Burton movie, and the movie helped me appreciate the book more."
