"If you haven’t bought a copy, do so."
"Those who bought the first book, but haven't bothered with The Man With The Midas Touch, that the second book is so much more comprehensive, containing such detailed information that I really don't know how the authors came across these facts. Their research is so informative.
"It's a great read of over 300 pages...and the design is much improved."
"Having purchased both (though I no longer own the first release), I found the second to be a far better read. Well worth the price of a new CD release!"
