There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The book is very poorly edited - perhaps not edited at all. This is sad, given the hard work that Falk has put into writing this. An informative book if you don't mind plodding through some repetitions and lack of coherence.
Thanks Mr.Falk for this time travel.
