I found this rather amusing extract of a book review (the original review was not published) on The Mathematics Gazette vol. 8 no. 124 (1916).
There is much that he does not say that he means, that he knows you know he means, and so you cannot contradict what he does not say, what you know he means to say—and yet you cannot agree with what he does say, for you know that that will be taken to mean that you agree with what he does not say as well, and to the latter you are firmly opposed. I hope the reader will survive this. That is how I felt after reading “X”.
Note that “X” is the name of the book being reviewed. However, since the review was unpublished, they chose to not name the title of the book.
While I can understand why this review was never published, I still would like to see the full review. It might be quite amusing.
