This is a surprisingly good and useful book. I was reluctant to buy this at first. Now I wish I had bought the entire series. Perhaps in these days of Wikipedia such books seem less useful than before. But I still value and rely upon the accuracy of this book more than the open source of Wikipedia. ( )
