    Could have been more thorough and better overall.

    This book is helpful to a certain degree, but I much prefer Mary Pride's books. I appreciate Cathy Duffy's section on learning styles, but got frustrated at the layout of the book. It's not very easy to read. Not very user-friendly and the whole book is rather dull. Also, what I truly wish is that she would have gone into FAR more detail with regards to SPECIFIC learning styles and SPECIFIC products. She does this to a certain degree, but it's all rather cursory. Her review and the whole book, therefore, seems as if it's incomplete.
