[ Pdf Findings: An Illustrated Collection ¹ words PDF ] by Rafil Kroll-Zaidi í I agree with the other comments the actual findings take up very little of the book, leaving only the citations for you to look up the research for yourself I listened to an interview by the author where he implied there were at least small explanations along with every finding, but that is definitely not the case More disappointingly, the second half of the book is spent by the authors illustrators just talking about themselves Unfortunately, returning this book won t even be worth the money I could get back.
