This is an excellent book and what it has to say is valuable. Let me say this first before I go on and talk a little about it.

Please read it through.

Why do I say that. Well there are parts (near the beginning) that will probably put some readers off. But like any logical reasoning you need to get the complete picture before you decide what you think about it.
