it was ok

Davis tries a different approach here, giving a page per topic with a short blurb followed by questions so you can quiz yourself. It did not work for me. Where his other books have been so interesting and educational, this one was too disjointed and shallow, and sometimes information on different pages repeats, making it even more obvious that we are not working with a concerted effort here. Plus, often the questions are trick questions, or vague, where it does not stay connected in your head while you go to the next page, sending you flipping back and forth to see what the answer relates to again.

Disappointing effort by a good author.
