*May be*. We all know that *some* folks can't swallow pablum when you
put the spoonful of it into their mouth. When a reasonable number of
folks that have obviously tried to read and digest the book's contents
have problems, then I agree with you that a flaw in the book's presenta-
tion may be a cause.

Just wanted to highlight that judgement about problems of that sort are
needed before deciding it is a book weakness. Frequency alone is not
enough. I'll save the risque joke that came to mind just then.
