This book was bit of a paradox. It kept me interested despite that it seemed to go into worthless details that should have been edited down. The whole concept of the book was not very believable, but it kept my interest anyway. It's a great book to read on the plane or a bus -- you don't get bored despite the desperate need for a good editor. All in all, it keeps your interest and is a good page-turner. One more thing, the author feels he actually has to explain who Hitler was and thinks he needs to explain the term "brain storm." That's kind of sad.
