This is the book that you may not know you need until you have read it. Loved the writing style. Loved the wealth of information. It is clear that the author has a lot of knowledge and experience on the subject - including the cultural context, its history, and more - without complicating neither the book nor the subject, but simply giving it context and relevance.
