Holy crap. I've BEEN currently reading this book for probably a year now. I expect to be currently-reading it for the next year, and that might be overly optimistic. I may never actually finish it.

It's well written, exhaustively researched - the exhaustively-researched bit might be the problem. Perhaps it's more of a reference book than a reading book.

So how to rate it? Well, as a reference book it is AWEsome. As light reading, it's killing me.

So, a three.

Update: i finally gave up and shelved it, in the case that I actually need it as a reference book. Egad.
