How I got my hands on this book?

I want to revise RC from basics. reading from new resource always give a different eye to my approach. I have kindle unlimited subscription. With that one can read this book(and other crackverbal books) for free. I was looking for power score RC guide but looked at this one and picked it up.

Pros:

1. I found good examples how to take notes, make mind maps - that's helpful and what takeaways to jot down along with some short hand examples (it is helpful to learn short hand)
2. Hands on with 21 passages with detail explanation including the approach to the question.
3. It seems the RC approaches/strategies have been simplified focusing on getting the most important things right.
4. Over simplified content. initial examples are really very illustrative.
5. Approach/ execution is quiet straight forward and result was quiet obvious on other questions.
6. Recommended for person who is really new. You will get to know only what you should know.
7. very good for revision purpose.
8. Attached online resource could have been a positive thing. --- I kept it in cons but actually there are online resource connected to each book.

Cons:

1. Fewer passages and questions. I found only 21 passages.
2. This happens in every resource but at times I was not satisfied with the OE given.

Takeaway:

I want to give 4.5/5 to this book. Straight, concise and to the point. I want to recommend this book to everyone.
