I read it a few years ago and found it to be very helpful although tough reading.I think I managed a couple of pages a day and would let it sink in.I also would reread some parts a few times just to grasp what he was trying to get across.
I think Bill Chen and this book gave me a consistant way to look at the game and a foundation for my play that still exist today.
I have thought about rereading it ,but just havn't taken it on.
Hope you enjoy it and that it does as much for your game as it did mine.
