Star Rating: 3/5

This clear and concise 20-page pamphlet, targeted at lay people in

yet possibly too long to be read by lay people, who may only have a
casual interest.

If it could be compressed into a more succinct, cheaper leaflet
and distributed widely, it may achieve the readership it needs to
