review 1: This book was about as timeless as parachute pants. Not that it was aiming for longevity, but for a book published in 2009 to already feel outdated is (to me) a waste of binding.

It is for readers who want a break from stories and fictions as well as a fun and extremely informative read. less

Not as comprehensive as his other stuff
