Wish I could write this to the author because it feels like the book could've been better edited, meaning put in a more orderly fashion. Most of the information seems to be plucked out of thin air with no sequence to it so understanding becomes difficult.
Don't get me wrong the information is all brilliant but I think I'm speaking on behalf of a lot of other students trying to study this book. It needs to be better organized, so that we can follow much more clearly. Also the pictures don't seem to have enough labels so when a new term is introduced, it's difficult to imagine what it looks like without an actual image.
Would just be an added improvement if the illustrations could be better labelled.
