Fascinating book! December 14, 2010
by
Comparing to other textbooks written in very interesting, entertaining way. Has plenty of illustrations and comments which help you to stay concentrated through out the whole book. Answers relevant issues, and isn't wordy.
Has some mistakes in it, so you might want to confirm information you read in there, but not that many to discard all the advantages of the book.
