My main gripe was the Kindle formatting. I would dock it a half star if I could, but I can't, so I'll dock it a full star. I agree with the other reviewer that the names of the authors need to appear with the chapter titles in the index. There were a few other annoying formatting problems, but it's been so long since I read this book I can't remember what it was. I was reading it on an Asus tablet instead of a Kindle, so that may have contributed to it.
For me, this book would have been worth $30. It was a steal on sale. Highly recommended.
