This is just another book written and sold by people in the education business. This information can easily be found anywhere. These types of shitty publishers and authors make deals
with "schools" that force their students to purchase their books and quote directly from them, or else fail class. This is a cheesey type of information monopoly that needs to come to an end. No fear folks, the progression of technology will soon put these old snooty library loving scumbags to rest.
I'm laughing at these other comments of all you fossils who had this book hundreds of yeras ago. It is old, outdated and entirely useless. Books like this are a slap in the face of the modern world, they are anti-progressive and need to be burned, right with the bibles.
