Robyn Mulvena on
It's a great book - answers all the questions, Is well set out
I’ve always found the colour theme to this series is atrocious. Yes it gets the potential buyers attention with its emergency like bio hazard colour theme, but it completely depersonalizes the book, and when it is a dummy book about human emotions or sex, that’s hardly appealing to pick up and read, let alone have it on your bookshelf at home. It really screams mass production, can’t be lazed designing the cover. I found this book particularly entertaining, it turns out it is more helpful than I thought it would be. The content is pretty relevant, and the topics are split into logical groups to break down and really build your knowledge from ground up via a good contents page. They are really experts at the whole subject, so it’s a reliable source of info.
