What are Monopoly's "52 Fundamental Playing Flaws"

Is there a public list of the "52 fundamental playing flaws" (fun fact #3) that Parker Brothers cited when they rejected Monopoly in 1933? I can't find one.

From "Monopoly: the world's most famous game-- and how it got that way":
George Parker felt the game had three fundamental errors (not fifty-two as legend would have it). It was too complex, took too long to play, and was based on concepts unfamiliar to most game players.

Yeah, I had always heard that the list of 52 flaws was wrong and that it was really only three.
