Not a very engaging read
on 30 June 2015
I have enjoyed reading several different books on this topic, but this one I found the least enjoyable. The material itself is interesting, but the way it's presented reads more like a dry, historical term-paper. Definitely this is not a book you will pick up and read in even a few sittings---not because of the length, but because it's simply not engaging. I found myself reading a few pages here and there, eventually finishing. I found the earlier chapters the best, the last two the least interesting.
