Student Review Quote:''This is one of the easiest reading books on the market. I'm surprised by how much information is generated with such little effort by the reader. No memorizing lists or outlines just clear concise explanations. I especially liked the extraordinary chapters which laid out a clear base on which the rest of this book builds.''
