I am very interested in the subject of this book but the author's unrelenting long-windedness makes it a struggle to read. Things that could be said in a paragraph take her pages to explain... her enthusiasm is too much and her rambling is exhausting. There are a few photos but not many. If the words and information in this book were condensed and more streamlined the content would have been very valuable, but as it sits there is a lot of blah blah blah rambling that make for painful reading. I tried to read the whole thing and forced my way through a third of it but had to give up as I realized I was suffering. If there are any good editors out there who could trim down this overgrown thicket there might be a good book in there somewhere.
