This book doesn't work for me

This book seems to be an A-Z of topics covered in one or several paragraphs extracted from various BR publications. As a result, each item is without a context and there is no additional explanation. I therefore found it difficult to learn much from. It is read in the style of a shipping forecast, which is probably a symptom of how the book is constructed, but compounds the dissatisfaction experienced during my listening to it. I guess I expected insights into BR's wisdom, rather than a large number of brief, out of context extracts.
