I should clarify something: this book was read but not by me. From the beginning it was clear that this book was going to be much more technical regarding the rifle than I had expected. I was looking for more of a cultural piece myself, and I knew from the first 20 pages or so that I wouldn't be able to get into it. Still, I felt since it was an Advanced Reader's Copy I should follow up with the agreement to review it so I decided to lend it to a friend (who is a non-fiction nut!)and get his valued opinion.
