Farmer has no doubt a good experience, just rather annoyed at the "dripping with praise" descriptions that make this guy a "Saint".
Not half as bad as in "3 cups of tea" and clearly, there is no fraud behind Farmer, but maybe this is a way and style of making a point.
Also, somehow all kinds of anecdotes get in the way, the Lewinski-Clinton scandal, the Russian poisoning affair in London etc. Presumably this is to add some credibility to the whole, but why ??? This just distracts from the main focus of the book
