I liked the book. It was written as a narrative, and I think that is effective to many extents. I wish it had gone a bit more into the specifics in a couple of places, but it got Regan's point across enough.
I lent my copy to a friend, so I picked this copy up on this website. They were fast and the book was in new condition.
