    Good book, but ALOT of information in one Chapter

    This book has tons of information and is really informative and descripitive. The only problem I had with the book is that it has so much information in one chapter and the entire book is in black and white, which makes it easy to become distracted or uninterested in the material.

    The book is okay...

    I purchased the book for a graduate course. Enough said, right?
