The fact that the authors share their personal experiences (good and bad) in regards to each subject also gives the book a "down to earth" feel that adds credibility to the information being presented. You can actually feel related to some of the experiences that they narrate, because you may have encountered them yourself in your training.
I recommend and rate this book a five star as an interesting and very informative introduction type of book. After finishing the book, I find myself going back to it several times to refresh concepts and to point out the subjects where I want to look elsewhere for more comprehensive information.
Overall, it is excellent.
The fundementals are great. There is no empty talk.
