This review ended up being longer than I wanted, so I decided to divide it up into parts. Big_Dog Review of fi3m - Contents Some people have asked about the contents, and just reading the table of contents on Amazon doesn’t give a very detailed picture, so I thought it would be good to summarize here. I kept it pretty brief, due to lack of time, but if you have a specific area you want more info on, ask and I’ll try to answer. Keep in mind this is just the first part of the review, so maybe your question will be answered later. Introduction – Story.
