This is an alright book in that it covers a wide berth and lots of topics. That may be the trouble. It covers so much it barely touches anything. You can, however, gain a basic knowledge of what it's all about but don't expect much in lengthy explanations. He does however, have something to say about them all, albeit very short as a rule. There is just not enough room left for in depth coverage what with the amount of ground he covers.
