Woa! That dude has posted some serious critique of the book. Since its a freebie, I'm going to at least start reading the book just to appreciate how well reasoned his analysis was

I have to think about getting this.

Just read a couple chapters and it's very boring and difficult to read. To much technicalities. Felt like a class I'd rather avoid in college.

Delivered on my windows phone. When it's free you dont need to care about the reviews!

I have only skimmed through the book, but I must say from what I did read, the reviewer is spot on.
