Very disappointing. I sent mine back almost as soon as it arrived. Compared to the likes of DK, Blackwell are, well, stuck in the Dark ages! The presentation is terrible and it is put together in a very dense, unweidly fashion. There are many more entertaining and interesting books on the subject than this. One for academics only.
