Makes the actual GR book much more accessible
Gives a really good mental map of the book, the structure and the characters but in no way diminishes the actual novel.
The list of the characters, some very droll comments in there.
A very measured reading but eminently listenable to.
No but that was not the intention of the book.
Essential reading before tackling GR
