I didn't like the book. Lots of rambling and saying the same thing over and over using different words. Throw in a made up principle that is more like a suggestion, overly general examples that are often off point and sentences that are long on words and commas but short on substance, and the reader is left wondering what is the point. If you want some light reading then this is ok, for a textbook it is extremely lacking
