this book was suggested by a friend. Enjoyed reading it, gave a new perspective about differences in heights and how it matters in ones life, working life and love life.
This is a very unique book. I read it over 30 years ago. I always was fascinated by height. This is a great perspective of this subject. The author gives an honest outlook of short and tall. My oldest stepdaughter who is in her early 20s also enjoyed it as well.
Interesting analyses and comparisons long and short
