Disappointing; abandoned Jun 17, 2009
This book had received rave reviews on a blog site discussing top non-fiction reads. Sadly, I can't return the favor. I found myself skimming too often to retain the events/facts of the story. Although touted by the blogger "reads like a novel" the writing style wasn't one I found appealing--the style was a little too "educational British" for me which is not my taste at all. I also felt the author spent too much time on one area and then would skip over things that really needed details or clarification. I gave it the 100+ page try and then abandoned it.
