No problem with my refundm so...4stars for that!
The book promises interesting stories, but the format is bad. Each page consists of a single line of text, and nothing more. You have to turn the page after each line, and I found it too disconcerting to read. If you think you can stand that, this is definitely worth your time. If the format issue is a problem, I suggest you look elsewhere.
