    1. I will say upfront that this is not a book to pick up and read cover to cover, and I didn't do that. I have not read every page, but I've read a great deal of it, and I'll be going back to it time and again.

    2. Now this could have been brilliant but it is not. It is clearly Fraser dumping some grad student research into a book without even attempting to edit into coherence.
