There's nothing wrong with this book that a good ediror couldn't fix. The folksy writing style certainly makes it approachable by the layman; however, its numerous mathmatical, grammatical and logical errors undermine confidence in the author's credibility. The repeated plugs for the author's DVD quickly gets tiresome.

Waste of time. Can probably get more info from internet for free. Author is more interested in pushing his DVD than anything else.

After struggling with more acedemic approaches I got this. Now all the other books are starting to make sense.
