A Concise Guide
A Concise Guide definitely is a fitting description of this book. I felt like I got the bread, but was left wanting a little more of the meat and sauce for a complete sandwich. Still a decent resource. The narrator was clear while bordering on sounding like a pleasant computer that was instructed to use plenty of inflection in her speech. Didn't learn anything new. It could however be a starting point for a beginner. Though again, I'm not sure if it creates an appetite for more as much as it leaves the listener with one. Feels a lot like an attempt to give a broad view of a world through a keyhole.
