Read it in one sitting.
Inexpensive: was able to pass it along to others.
Prompted me to want more on St. Vincent de Paul.
I was hoping for more information, but it was well-worth it, as it set the framework for future readings on this very beautiful saint. Best Uses: Outline of a saint's life; Cons: needs more details; Pros: Makes me want more info, Simple and Easy to Read
