Top Customer Reviews
This 'stouter' edition is almost identical albeit a tad longer than the original with about 20 additional topics.
The 'facts' are very interesting - though, IMHO, some are more than little debable.
Nevertheless, I thought it was brilliant and couldn't put it down until I had read it cover to cover.
Excellent and a pleasing purchase.
