    I purchased this book to place in the Faith Base dorms at a local jail, and I kept one copy to read. The book was okay; I was somewhat disappointed. I guess I was expecting more than what was presented. There are other books available that are much better and I would look for the other sources. Too much emphasis was presented on one area and not enough in other areas; simply put; I was disappointed.
