    Not what I expected

    The book was not like I thought and wasn't right for me, but for someone that is into this kind of reading - it would be good. I found it to be boring when reading the table of contents and returned it. The book contains things like: This tool was used for this and this tool for that. That isn't perfectly what it said, but you get the idea!
