Why would i buy this book?

Was buying some books from the National Geographic site.

Came across a book's cover page:

Anyone in the Indian subcontinent will be surprised by the lack of synchronicity between the book title and the cover. The bindi is not at all an Islamic symbol. In fact, Islam prohibits wearing the bindi.

At this deep level of ignorance, why would i even consider buying the book?

this morning i was having a conversation (which ended in an argument) on the level of research we guys undertake before launching any product/ service. i was amazed when this colleague kept on arguing with me trying to defend "No Research" strategy with the assumption of "I KNOW THE BEST".

This blog post actually is in line with the same argument of doing things that we don't even know are 'wrong'.
