Gee Erik - the books not that old. Besides my main problem with the book is not about technique, politics or colour.
Well realizing the first edition is from 1970, this means in reality that the book was written approx 35 years ago. Many styles and federations are simply not that old, hence the conflicts and problems associated with them cannot be that old.

I myself also have some restrictions towards the book, but those are again based on the age of the book (and thus the aera in which it was written). It simply isnt the complete manual people claim it is and I sometimes think that for some people the simple existence of the book forms a constraint on their posiible growth.
