Good for beginners and as quick review Sept. 26 2011
By Alex - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This piece is a good compilation. I have yet to thoroughly study each passage, but I have covered many. Some pieces do not at first appear to fit in (and perhaps they don't- I could very well be crazy), but after pulling yourself back from a linear view it comes together nicely. It is true that many sections of this compilation can be found elsewhere if you look so I recomend it for anyone looking for the essence of concepts set down by past leaders in the field.
