To ME (and in MY opinion,) under each concept heading, rather than defining a term or answering the question first then expanding upon it, the text uses the "somewhere in the following paragraphs you will find the answer but you might have to read between the lines and you will always have to work for it to find the answer" approach. That may be a valid, big-picture, scholarly method that, once grasped, makes for more lasting neural-connection memory. It's just not how my male, senior, pragmatic brain works: Ask question; State clear answer; Discuss. Or: State Term; Define; Discuss. By the end, I'll "get" the big picture. Along the way, I need staccato articulation (and, for me, I need Amerian English.)
