I like the book ,firstly the author is a New Englander ! He has written other books also.
I like collecting books by renowned authors ,particularly hardcover books because many are
not being printed anymore.
If one wishes to order this book ,you need to purchase it thru a book seller,and mostly they are used ,
in good condition , However ,you have a nice collectors book on your bookshelf.
