A long and somewhat tedious read, but the subject matter and history is pretty interesting. I didn't have the patience for it at the time, so I brought if back to the library, planning on picking it up again. In the end, I found that PBS made a documentary hosted by Furguson, so I checked that out. It does the trick.

Nicholas Let me know how this, heard about it and looks good.

Gerald Prokop It was a really tedious read, and kind of long to boot, but the subject was pretty interesting. I just marked it abandoned because I found the DVD version at the library, and I think that's enough to fit my purposes.
