    I have heard about this book, but haven't heard of anyone giving any review on it. It does sound like a very interesting book by the chapters.

    AIC, do you have this book yet? What can you tell us about it? Do you know why the amount of pages is quite different between the two books listed?

    I think I'm going to get one, but would love to hear from anyone that has it.

    I've read it, and all I can say is that is "exceptional". Very well done. Cheesey covers and binding, but it really doesn't matter.

    The page number is just a typo. The book has a lot of good reference in it. Here is a review.
