Training of the Twelve

I have had this book for about 27 years, Debbie gave it to me on my first birthday after we got married. I started it at the time and got to page 200; there was still a calendar bookmark for the year 1979 there. I don't remember why I stopped there, it is over 500 pages.

Anyway, I have always heard this book praised as a good read. Well, I have managed to get to page 70 in about a week. I find it to be overly wordy and stating the obvious. Perhaps its just me. I will continue to wade through it, but won't be surprised if I give up again—probably at about page 200 :)

Has anyone else read the book? If so, what were your reactions? It is considered a classic, and has been reprinted many times by different publishers.
