'Pier g Wlodek przypomina - z wasika i z charakteru - Herculesa Poitot z powiesci Agaty Christie: jest elegancki, zarozumialy i ostro ocenia innych, ale jego poczucie wlasnej wartosci ma solidne podstawy. Czytelnik jednak, zeby to ocenic, musi podjac potezna prace intelektualna musi przetlumaczyc sobie i zrozumiec jego wyglaszane po polsku komentarze! (...) Fakt, ze ksiazeczka jest dwujezyczna zmusza czytelnika do wysilku, a motywacja to dla nauki jezyka rzecz najwazniejsza.'
