Not worth the $3.00

Lots of minutes wasted in suggesting other reviews by this company, then in very general information about the book. Only a few minutes are spent in specific reviewing. Possibly these reviews are written by middle or high schoolers. (?). You can find the general information on Wikipedia. Don’t waste your money.
