It isn't the subject matter that's horribly dry and boring.. It's the way the book is written. Not only shouldn't you buy this book, but if you have to borrow it from a classmate to read a chapter, be sure not to operate heavy machinery for a few hours. There oughta be a law against such uninspired writing. Really, I'm not exaggerating.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
