Pros

  • Deserves Multiple Readings
  • Easy To Read
  • Informative
  • Well Written

Cons

    Best Uses

      Only part way through but this is proving to be an excellent resource. I've always been intimated by technical jargon but Sabin-Wilson simplifies the language, builds confidence and helps create an order in which to proceed and things to be aware of.
