He also points to the weak and strong points of the book in question. Based on findings of the article, despite the merits of the book such as dealing with research questions, containing specialized exercises, referring to the tables, and most importantly focusing on the field of Persian Literature, the book has many fundamental problems, including the contradiction between the title of the book and its content, the writer’s lack of attention to the basic rules of writing and editing, the presence of confusing sentences suffering from lack of enough information, and its incomprehensibility. These shortcomings will prevent its readers from not only its full understanding but also from benefitting from it.
