Not without merit, but a clear failure
Let me begin by saying that despite the claim of being some 200 pp. in length the book will appear as just over 100 pp. on the Nook, not at all an auspicious start. The authors manage to provide a solid introduction for those unfamiliar with the monument, its creator, and its controversies. However, one is painfully aware that there is nothing new in this book. The authors clearly enjoy no more access or insight than what is plain to any member of the general public. Nothing in the book has been gleaned from publicly available property records, or the business records of the Elberton Granite Finishing Company. There is nothing in the book that could not be had from an afternoon on the internet, or twenty minutes on Wikipedia, which it seems is all the research the authors did. Overall the book is just an instance where a interesting subject suffers tragically at the hands of incompetent of lazy authors.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
