My Opinion:
I'm positive some one, some where, will disagree, but I was so bored by this book. It was almost painful how textbook-like it was. Now when you think about that, would you go back and read your history textbook from high school? Probably not. That's exactly what it felt like for me reading this.
The content was another story.
It was decent, relevant and even educational, but like I said, the way it was laid out is hard to get past.


1/5


Recommend? Not really.
