Very disappointing as half of it is an extract of a book I already have. the first 45 minutes are brilliant but it can't make up for the rest. such a shame.
- A Scott
Over half is advertising the new book
Although I loved the actual new material. I was very disappointed that 45 mins was the first chapter of the book that this accompanies. In reality you only get about 40 mins new material if you have already purchased the book on The Princess Elizabeth.
