Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I cannot say that this book was enjoyable, it was rather dry. There is some good background information. I really give it a 4.5 stars. I think that there could be a little less "lecture" involved. Well, even then, I've had some great lectures. So, I guess I am trying to say that information is there, but it is definitely a slow read.
