I just started. On page 47 of 165. Short read but lots of great info. I may have a hard time letting go of this one. It's a 1st ed. hard back and all.

I’m a bit disappointed. It started out strong then the author began to continuously repeat himself and the book became reminiscent of a section out a high school text book. He was very vague about most if not all his accounts of significant accomplishments through the use of the compass. When it comes down to it the book seemed a bit rushed and lacked the detail most readers would like from a book tackling such a "riddle". Overall it's a short enough read providing a few interesting points and tid-bits that may warrant your precious time.
