This book is an excellent one, I would say. Enjoyed reading it! To add, introducing one quote at the beginning of each chapter was really a great idea! I would specially thank the author, Bruce A. Bolt as every effort was made to bring all the relevant data and illustrations to the reader.



However, the contents are arranged in a rather slovenly way. I was striving in navigating through and sticking to the lessons.
