Good book, bad presentation.

The book was okay; It had good info. and a good topic, but it was missing graphics or visuals that would have tied it all together. It was just story after story after story! It got boring! Don't get me wrong, it's an interesting book with a really interesting topic, but it just wasn't presented in a good way.
