This book contained good information. I actually feel like, I'd be better prepared should I want to pursue a License. I read it just b/c I felt it was good info to know anyway. The major problem I have with this book is the writing style. He seems to introduce everything before he talks about it. This book could be just as useful in about half as many pages should he choose not to Introduce each topic before he talks about it. It made it a very boring read. But again, good info - once you finally get to it. I suggest you use a highlighter so you don't have to re-read so much should you save for reference.

I'm not sure what the return policy is on this book; but pages 204-236 are missing. Turn to page 204 and the next page is 268 -- UPSIDE DOWN! Skip past the UPSIDE DOWN pages 237-268 and you get a right side up page 237. Pages 204-236 are missing. I need to find out if I can return this crazy book.
