I hope you are up for some hard-core independent study! Go order your book! Check with your local library first, to see if they can inter-library loan it for you. This will give you a kind of preview. If you like it, and feel sure you will continue with this project, you can purchase a copy. I’d hate to be responsible for a bunch of folks spending a bunch of money that they regret later….
I ordered mine through the library last week and got it today! And I live in bum-f*ck Alaska! So, it’s worth asking.
