I'm a bit confused by some of the reviewers who complained about the book not being all they expected it to be. One complained it didn't have all the people he expected the book to have. That's why CBD allows us to view inside the book at the Table of Contents. The reviewer could have looked in the Table of Contents and seen all 199 people, places and things featured before deciding if the book met his needs. Another complained the book was smaller than expected. In the description, CBD provides the exact dimensions of THIS and MOST books. Others complained it didn't contain as much information about each one as they expected. Again, there were sample pages for viewing, plus the Table of Contents showed us how many people were covered in how many pages, making it pretty easy to determine the average amount of space that could be devoted to each. Some received more space, some less, but between that and looking at the sample pages, it seems pretty clear to me. I believe if we will look at the information and samples that CBD has gone to great lengths to provide, we should know what to expect so we won't be disappointed if we order.
