User Review  - Allzeros - Walmart

I have enjoyed the content of my book as it is has taken a very intricate subject and explained it in common sense terms and made it exciting to read and digest. I would have liked more photos but that maybe hard to get at this point in time. Great work in that it clarified many things for me.. Read full review
