By Ned Middleton HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 11 Jun. 2006
Format: Hardcover
The very least I would expect from the author of this, his twentieth book (the previous 19 being all fiction) is an understanding of grammar and punctuation - something which is sadly lacking in this work.

As a general rule, we do not start sentences with “And” or “But” and, although occasionally acceptable, there are too many instances here. Just as a capital letter commences any new sentence, so a capital letter is the first to appear after a colon - but not in this work. Furthermore, I found too many instances of digression when try to make a simple point.

All of which is off-putting for the serious reader.

In short, this book is hard to review because it is most difficult to read and if it can’t be read - then there really is no point in it being reviewed in the first place.

Poor showing – especially after all that research.
