No proof reading, poor research
on 5 January 2014
There seems to be a reasonable story lurking in here, but reading it is made much harder by the complete lack of proof-reading - e.g. the first time we are introduced to the step brothers, one has the surname Turner and the other Tuner (seems unlikely), and as the book progresses they randomly switch around (pretty sure they should both be Turner).
Find it hard to accept that "Endeavour Press is the UK's leading independent digital publisher"!
The book is also let down by poor research - the author doesn't seem to understand the difference "maths" as a school subject and the sort of work a pure mathematics researcher would be doing; just seems to assume that there must be letters, numbers and greek symbols in there somewhere, and that it must involve algebra in some way.
As for using "west" and "east" positive and negative numbers to identify the latitude and longitude of a building in Switzerland - I think that was where I finally snapped! (Hints to the author: 1) you need a north cordinate as well, 2) both the northing and easting should be positive for Switzerland, and 3) east is positive, not negative in almost every grid coordinate system, and certainly in WGS84 which is what GPS is based on)
