I'm always irritated by the cover of R. David Lankes's book "Expect More" (bit.ly/30JAK7l). Am I the only one who thinks that a goldfish with a shark fin symbolizes the opposite of "Expect More"? Wouldn't an iceberg be a better choice to get the message across?


@Bibliothecarmen "expect more" is the iceberg. "expect less" is: swimming, you see a fin => deadly shark? Most of the time, a fin indicates no deadly shark, but e.g. a dolphin or harmless shark. Thus the goldfish.
(I am a surfer and never experienced a fin. To be honest, if I had, I would probably think it's an iceberg (as a metapher for deadly shark: "god damnSwimFightForYourLifeYourAreLost")
