did not like it
Read in October, 2007

I like books. I like to read. There aren't many books I don't like.

This book was one of those. I hated the author's writing style. I couldn't stand it.

I'm sure the content is great, Ms. (Mrs.?) Miller did lots of research, but it was so poorly written I couldn't slog through it.

What was wrong? She used sentence fragments everywhere. It was choppy, disconcerting and I had to put it down out of sheer frustration around page 94 or so.

Shame on her editor.

Sadly, I can't recommend this book.
