    The old addage, you get what you pay for, is never truer than in the purchase of this book.

    Not one picture in the entire book. The old saying "A picture is worth a thousand words." Must have been lost on this author. It's factual, that's about all. If the rest of the books for this author are the same, I'll not waste my money or time.
