So I've perused and made plenty of edits and even questions. There were some questionable statements that I needed to verify before I started trusting ideas. Some of his perspective of course is rather "old' and in need of updating but reading his stuff "confirmed" some of my beliefs.
This was a terrible book. The information was inaccurate at best. It wasn't even consistently inaccurate throughout the book. One chapter would say one thing in the beginning, and by the middle, it'd be saying something different. The numerology chapter was especially hard to follow because there were a lot of typos and other misinformation. I would not recommend this book. In fact, if I could, I'd rate it lower than 1 star.
