The story was a great read but the typos and editing were awful. I almost thought this was a print on demand book due to the number of mistakes. Some of the words were bolded or partial words were bolded. Lines were not lined up and there were grammatical errors.

This is a great account of the tragedy by someone who was an employee of the club from way back and one of the few books that I re-read on a semi-regular basis. My only disappointment had nothing to do with the content of the writing, but with the printing of the book itself. My copy has varied fonts, often within the same sentence, vertically misaligned pages, and anytime the letters n and r are next to each other it looks like an m. In short, great content, poor print quality.
