If not, then I dont think there is anything in here that will spark that interest.
It reads like it was put together just to make a quick buck by someone with no real interest for the subject nor any particular writing skill. (Apologies if this is incorrect but thats how it came across to me).
If you know something you will learn hardly more than
a reference dictionary would present. It falls between two stools
in my opinion.
