Well put together--great selections and great writing--very thorough. Sometimes the editor (criticizing my professor here-- Yipes!) summarizes bits of a selection in the middle of it, which is distracting and which makes them choppy. I understand why he did it, but sometimes it's so much that I wonder why he didn't just summarize the whole thing.
