The little Black book has a pleasant sprinkling of dry humor. It is apparent that the author is well read in the subject, but even more important, he has taken time to coordinate his own impressions. He dwells on aspects which have seemed most interesting to him. In spite of this, or perhaps because of it, he covers most of the subject. For those who have read a dozen of these little books here is one that can still be read with pleasure. He dwells on points that all of us find difficult. He presents the subject concisely and simply and directs the reader to the best source material available for additional information.
