READERS BE AWARE that this is a 44-page text (in trade size copy) . I was hoping for a more in-depth history. I made the mistake of not checking the length prior to the purchase, or I would have selected a different book. I finally decided to give it a read before I gave the book to my friend (now a donation and to avoid embarrassment as a gift), and found it a reasonable overview of the topic. If I had been looking for a quick snippet of history (as one might summarize from a couple college lectures), this might suffice, though not for the price.
The cover art is the best part of the book. While well enough written, it struck me more as a term paper than a book. I wrote longer, researched papers in college in less than a couple weeks. The chapters are short. There are no graphics in the book to support the discussion. I might not have minded as much for $5.99, but I pay $12.99 for good trade covers that are at least 100+ pages long. Also, the text lacks a list of references (bibliography) which would, at the very least, give greater faith that the topic was well researched and would provide other sources that could be used to learn more about the topic. Wikipedia has almost as much content. A short web tour would reveal several great sites that would provide this content or better, in my opinion.
In the end, it leaves me thinking about some books that I have seen on Amazon about 'How to Make Fast Money Writing on Amazon". It feels a like a shill game. I see that he has published a number of other historical 'summaries' on Amazon for $12.99. I am sure they are similar in nature, so if you like it than you may like the others, but you can be sure I won't be a customer for that value. I thought about giving it one star, but given that the page length is listed (should you think to look for it) and there are other reviews that point out the issues as well, I thought I would be more fair-minded. Definitely a case of caveat emptor.
