I was in the library checking out another book to read, and saw this one sitting on the shelf. I picked it up and liked the look of the pages and thought it was interesting with all the detailed drawings and maps and fold out pages. Sure, I'll read this I thought and checked it out. It was good, and it was an easy relatively quick read. It is geared more to the teenager crowd. I see there it's a series of 3 book. I think I will wait to read the other two at a later date.
