The content of the book is helpful, but it's very difficult to get through the chapters when a sentence can run on for seemingly quarter of a page, kind of exactly like what this sentence is doing right now, if you know what I mean.
I would not recommend this book for a class unless your have a personal vendetta against one or more of your students.
This book is perfect to read at leisure, if you are a clinically diagnosed masochist.
