I thought I would provide a brief review of Dr. Wisot and Dr. Meldrum's book "Conceptions & Misconceptions" for those of you wondering if it is worth purchasing. I have already read half of the book and I think it is wonderful. I wish I had this book about one year ago to help me through this confusing and difficult process.

I do recommend it to everyone.
