Another book I put down because I have no patience for nonfiction right now, even though I really was enjoying the insights into the three communities. I should probably have skipped around a little more than I did rather than trying to power through the book from start to finish. I will definitely check this one out from the library again when I have a longer attention span (or more free time). ( )
