One funny thing I've noticed that's worth mentioning I think: Toland makes lots of footnotes. Quite a few, actually. For the first 95 pages or so I paid no attention to the asterisk, but something caught my eye. Upon closer examination, Toland doesn't use an asterisk; he uses very small Stars of David. Kind of passive-aggressive, or ironic I think, but definitely an unusual fact about the book.
One real con though about the book: The pictures are all printed in black & white on the same paper as the text. The pictures therefore suck. I would probably have been willing to pay an extra few cents or a dollar to have pictures printed on paper that would compliment the photos, not subtract from them. Aside from this disappointment, I'm quite happy with my purchase.
You may also see, as I did, that what happened once, could happen again.
A fascinating read that I highly recommend.
