313 pages - the 1st one of which takes a lot of re-reading to understand ............... for me anyway

p.s. Swiggy , when you're writing up your PhD, use plain English :-)

I haven't read the whole thing by any means, but give the section on the "local surfer" a read..

I only quickly skim-read that section, it is definitely pretty long-winded..

"There is little evidence of this found within the Local
Surfer according to Beaumont (2007), but is a characteristic more common of the
Wannabe."

This is a PhD thesis and uses the word 'Wannabe'!! I particularly love the way she uses the term 'Local Surfer' as if she was referring to a species distinct from the rest of the human race.
