Well this is interesting. It would however be much more credible if it had been picked up by a real publisher. This is just a fly by night type of operation it seems and I would venture that the information or facts, if that's what you will call them might be a bit skewed. That being said I'm off to buy a copy to add to my collection of Beverly Hills documents. Thanks and look forward to seeing what it has to say.
