Is there no limit to the increase in their prices? Set out like a good lunch-time conversation, the book follows the course of a meal, with starters (the introduction), main course and then the discussion which one always has at the end of a good meal.

It costs less than even the cheapest meal and is far more satisfying than even the most gourmet banquet.
