On this second go 'round, I simply read the story without concerning myself with the documentation. I could not put it down! It is an incredible story, incredibly written. I'm so glad I kept the book and started on it again.
So the lesson is read it as a great story, detailed and well told, but don't get bogged down in the footnotes!
