Do not expect this book to be a "quick read." It is loaded with information. I would compare this to reading a textbook rather than reading for pleasure. It's not exactly a book where the reader can do a page a day; pick it up when you have time to read a chunk at a time to better understand and process the content. Originally, I had borrowed a copy from the library but needed more time as the book was due before I had made a dent in it. I'm glad I purchased the book, though, so that I can earmark and write in my copy and read it at my pace.
