    My reaction to this book was the same as yours, Andrea. Another non-fiction book that should have been just a good magazine article.

        I don’t recall. Usually I try to read between 50-100 pages, with some skipping ahead to try and get a sense if things are going to improve.

          I generally use Nancy Pearl’s suggestion — 50 pages until you are 50 years old, theme subtract a page for each year you are over 50 Although sometimes I get further on forbore I abandon.
