We found that the book highlights more on the practicalities of the process rather than stressing on the scientific explanation of it all. Although we found that the book could be a bit more illustrative in terms of diagrams rather than just spoken text, we did find that it rates high among readers on Amazon with most offering it a 5 starred rating.
