    This book is excellent and very entertaining and instructive. I enjoyed reading it as I like short true story books (not even 58 pages long). Highly recommended.

    Not good

    The first part of this book up until about page 58 was a very interesting book full of great information,after that it was no more than repeating the first part of the book. Was not really happy with it.
