    1. I ve now read a couple of books in this series Although it was enjoyable it was a bit hard going to get my head around Not sure if that s the fault of the book or the reader, but it was interesting none the less.


    2. I enjoyed the concepts explored in the book, but Battles never used a 6 letter word if he could use a 12 letter word instead and it became distracting and didn t add anything to the reading experience.
