Great Read! Sept. 2 2008
By Lynsey Lanz - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Wow! I have been searching all over for a book on his topic and pre-ordered it as soon as I found this! I received it today and it is grand! My thought was to use it for research, but I am also finding it a very pleasurable read. The writing is engaging and has done well in keeping my interest - I highly recommend this book. Cheers!
