I can't remember where I saw this book mentioned, but I wrote it down to follow up on and glad I did. It was really fun to read as I was so interested in the topic. Good detail was presented so it showed very well done research on the part of the authors. When I am done, I am sending this book(or buying another copy) to my brother. Thank you Peter and Don for taking the time to write this informative book.
