I didn't exactly finish this, but I didn't abandon it either. I simply gave up my academic career and are considering living under a bush for the rest of my life. No, but for real. This book was absolutely horrifyingly boring.
I didn't read all of it, since there were some chapters that wasn't needed for class/exams, but I read most of it. An accomplishment, really. I have like 50 pages left, that I'm not going to bother to read. So long.
