    Looks like the English translation could be improved, e.g. what on earth is the word "valorization" that appears with each chapter heading?

    A simpler title would also probably help it sell better.

    Hm! Yes. This is the official English translation, which is used in colleges Europe (but, I know that there are differences between U.S. English, Australian English, official English etc.?)
    Do you think you can be involved in editing language?
    Big thanks for the advice.
