The Crimes of Paris: A True Story of Theft, Murder & Detection by Dorothy and Thomas Hoobler, release date April 3, 2009

page 146, line 8

"Thus Bertillon soon realized that, in addition to the strain of ten daily hours of rote copying, every minute of his time was wasted on an activity that was of no use whatsoever. The schoolboy who refused to spend time on subjects that he didn't like now reasserted himself."

~~I am enjoying this book, I am not very far with it though. There is alot of information on a whole new topic for me (Paris) and there is so much background that it goes into that I wasn't expecting. But so far, so good..
