    Could someone please tell me why the linked hub is not considered worthy of being featured?

    I am beginning to feel very insulted by the way HubPages operate. Am I right to?

      Don't worry, I have lots that don't get featured, then I change something, add a picture and so on then it comes back. Just read it by the way!

      Looks to me like nothing but an advertisement and there are no paragraph breaks. That makes it hard to read. The links look crazy too.

      I am taking beginning website development.   The first thing they taught us is the value of "white space".   

      Online readers do not read the same ways as when people read books.   Onliners sort of skim pages in bite size nuggets.

      Your page is hard to read as the text is all one big mass.    Content aside.

      Throw a few line breaks  in there and maybe a relevant pic or something.   A lot of it is making it easier for the eye to interpret so your text message can sink into someone's brain.

      If you could get some "color" on the page that would be nice too.

        Those are useful suggestions, which I shall probably adopt. Thanks.

    Sheesh! Sorry but NO WONDER it's not featured.

    ->Image is pixelated. Use a bigger image.
    ->Remove those links. Or at least hyperlink a word like Click here. OR use an Amazon capsule so it displays pictures, as it's designed to do. BTW, you don't even have an affiliate code in your links, so you wouldn't be making money off them anyway!
    ->Break up the text with separate text boxes and subtitles. Online users have a short attention span, so make it easy to scan!
    ->Redo your title. Your title needs to match what people will Google. No one will be Googling half those words when searching for a new book.
    ->Keep the content tight, on topic and less personal. You lost me in the first few sentences, comparing the book to dinner. Or something...

      I never knew pixelated images prevent a hub from being featured. Thanks a ton WryLilt.

    Having content that is published on Amazon (which is about half the Hub) is "duplicated" content, and I'm surprised the Hub hasn't been unpublished.

      o.O Didn't even notice that. Didn't bother to read the hub past the first  sentences though...
