Ludicrously overpriced tripe!
Incredibly disappointing. The content was interesting and the audio clips were a nice touch but I firmly believe that this book wasn't even given a read through prior to publication. You'd be lucky to find a single paragraph without a grammatical error or a spelling mistake auto-corrected into a word that don't belong. Information and sentences are repeated, sometimes almost word for word. As a Crawford fan who's read a lot of the biographic work out there, I believe this is basically an amalgamation of other people's work from print and online, reworded (only slightly in some cases) and repackaged. But adding insult to injury, I HAD TO PAY $12 FOR THE PRIVILEGE OF WASTING MY TIME ON IT! Infuriating.
