why are there zero ever comments for this book? i was trying to search for a book about death within life, or dead Canada and buzz comes up this famous old book. is it the unhomo perspective that makes it so racist?

I reread this book after a many year interval to see how it would hold up to changed circumstances and increased scrutiny. It doesn't hod up very well, I'm afraid. Far too long. Mostly common sense, but not necessarily true, and not testable. Contradictory and tautological. And today's street users are focused on their gadgets, not other users, so the premise is false.
