The trouble is that I'm not entirely sure who the book is for. Although it is claimed to be aimed at the novice, I'm not convinced that writing in a somewhat quirky style is the way to achieve this - my feeling is that it's more likely to confuse the uninitiated. Those with more experience of the subject are unlikely to find much which is new to them, although they might enjoy the book as a bit of light reading. I think that the most suitable reaership is those who are currently studying the subjects involved - advanced school students or beginning undergraduates - who will benefit from learning a bit of the history of the subject and from a different 'take' on what they are studying.
