The book description was vague enough to get me to think it might have the information I'd like. I looked thru as much of the example as BN would allow. There would never be a chance of seeing this book in a store. I bought it hoping it would have some useful information, but it was a complete waste of my time and money! BN did not give me enough example of the book to make an informed purchase. Total failure on BN's part.
