I was a little disappointed that this was not an exact transcript of the book of the same/similar name. Rather it is a set of interviews/discussions covering broadly the same topics in the same order, but at little length.
As an accompaniment to the paperback edition it probably serves its purpose well enough, but that was not what I was looking for and I only wish I'd scrutinised more of the details and listened to the preview prior to purchase.
