This is actually an incredibly informative, interesting and fun book. I just checked too many books out from the library and didn't have enough time to finish this one. Unfortunately, someone put it on hold, so I can't renew it, either.

I'm thinking I'm going to buy the e-book version. This is just one of those good-to-have books. ( )
