    Overall I found this book to be underwhelming Beyond the Introduction and Afterword what existed inbetween only offered a handful of pull uotes for future writing The heavy emphasis on case study formating left much desired for theorizing It took me longer than expected to finish this book because I wasn't all that excited by it's content
