It is a book that contains many books in itself. Basically it is a compendium of monographs and the difficulty of developing projects such as this one is due to the fact that it requires a considerable effort in compiling sources, documentation, interviews and a long etcetera.
The differentiating element with respect to other similar books lies in the fact that in the latter, the supposed capacity for synthesis overlaps with the difficulty of offering something innovative. In other words: ” Most are reduced to a ” copy and paste” .
