    My husband loved it...

    ...of course he loved it because he's an engineer & saw the logic in everthing. To him this is very entertaining; who else would find this logic fascinating? Being stuck in the car w/ it, I frankly I wished I'd never picked it up.

    If you want to waste time, this is a great book. If you want to become informed while you read; go elsewhere.

    Not impressed

    Was not very impressed with this book, thought it would be more challenging than it was. Was still good for something different to read.
