Rated 5 out of 5 by from Visual Learners Only !! We all have learning curves. For me I am a visual learner. Other people can read and learn. Show me and I will remember,also applies to travel in Ontario. This book is as good as it gets if you are that type of person. Yes I did have to read it but it came together. Nice little book
