Could do better
on 11 November 2010
The advice contained seems sound and is easy to digest. However I found the format unsatisfactory. It seems to be just a convenient re-publication of newspaper articles - so one page per 'lesson'. This is fine in itself but tends to spend too much time restating previous lessons (I guess because a previous newspaper article may be missed) and fails to have a good linking mechanism. No exercises, no index and very little in the way of summaries. At the very least I would like to see clear chapter titles (what is in the lesson), and some kind of summary/index at the end of each section.
The book is also small and doesn't feel great value. I felt I learnt something useful from the book, it's not expensive and is easy to read - so an overall B- in my view.
