I am having difficulty staying focused on the content with all of the spelling errors. As a teacher, the author should be embarrased that he allowed his book to be put on shelves with as many spelling and grammatical errors there are...and I've only read about 15 pages. It doesn't give me much confidence in what he is writing. Glad the NOOK book was only $3.99!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
