I was only able to read one chapter (Chapter 3), but what I did read was very well written, informative and easily understandable.
I was unable to purchase the e-book (unavailable), and I was unable
to purchase a hard copy via the provided links (also unavailable).
As I am unable to give a complete recommendation due to the limited preview and inability to purchase, I would say that, based on what I did read, I would absolutely buy the book.
