Great book for those suffering from ADD

The Sixth edition.
Well, what can I write without working myself up into an angry stew?
This book is a rip-off. Why?
There are a remarkable number multiple duplicated and absolutely identical graphics that the publisher has used to fill the pages.
Just looking through the book for 5 minutes I found these examples: "Proving unit" shown in pages 54, 93, 143, 161 and 185. There are five other graphics, two of which take up an entire page other take between half a page and quarter of a page. These are "Recommended type of test probes", "Hazard risk assessment form" (full page), "Voltage checker", "Secure isolation of supply" and the "Flow chart for secure isolation procedure" (full page). Strangely each of these examples has been duplicated 5 times. There are other duplications but I just can't be bothered with the rest.
Don't get sold by looking at the pages of the book on amazon - the chapter titles are misleading. For example the chapter covering fault finding just lists what information you need rather than help finding faults.
If you have a very short attention span then this book is for you.
In one word - rubbish.
