.....and it's helped with research projects. Overall, it's a straight forward and in depth source. You probably can't write a paper based solely on the info provided but its a good starting point.

I really like this book, although I have not read it all yet. Some of the articles are quite short, though. Overall, I believe it is a great investment!
