I bounced off this book hard and wouldnt have finished it if it didnt have annotations from my grandfather in it. I feel like it would be better if his editor had made him remove 20% before publishing. I dont know, maybe i wasnt able to engage with it on its level. I left feeling like i had my time wasted.
