Nothing new for anyone who has read the Miles/Morgan biographies and I found the garish design scheme didn't appeal. The main problem with the text is that the author is borderline sub-literate and fails to understand the meaning of the vocabulary he attempts to employ. The risible errors can be amusing but just become rather annoying.
