I find it has many repetitions. Moreover, even the needed information is provided in such a vague narrative style that makes it hard to organize and memorize the key points. Consequently it is not easy to find what you need in the body of the text, because important facts and definitions are scattered and not highlighted in any way. Tables and charts however may be helpful. I also did not find any answers or rationales for Critical Thinking exercises. It seems to me this fact is a very disappointing omission. At the same time the book contains a lot of useful information. It would be indeed, the best source, after the thorough text editing with the goal on mind to make studying process more efficient.
