I agree the Caryle book was awful for all the reasons you mention as well as the bad writing. I think someone of his stature deserved something better. However, the reason I said the book was "fantastic" was because of the wonderful material contained therein. Perhaps I should have said the material was fantastic but the book itself was awful. I just felt the material justified the adjective.
