It is 5 stars from me for this one, I liked the layout and the amount of detail and the number of facts that were crammed into the pages. There were a few images too which broke up the text and helped illustrate some of the points – I really enjoyed it and it has made me carry out a bit of my own research too after I was highly inspired to want to find out more – highly recommended!Donna's Book Blog
