Moral of this story? Don't judge a book by it's cover. Sure, the cover looks cool and it's eyecatching and it draws attention, but wasn't it once sai that it's what's on the inside that counts? How to be respectful and safe in what you think is a public space? Seriously? That's what the book's about? Definitely didn't get THAT message from the cover page!

This book really caught my attention in a positive way. I loved all the little details and captions, It reallymade me think about the ways people use and misuse public space. I found some of the facts very interesting, however some arcticles lacked in excitement and came to me as quite repetitive. I would rate this a 7 out of 10.
