A personal message from the author:

My goal is to save readers the time and energy of researching and gathering data on topics they want to learn about. My books provide as much information as possible on a single topic under one book cover, kind of a one stop shop. I hope that the information given in my books will answer your questions, and will provide a useful guidance.
