    Just take the time to read it and then all the answers will be clear

    I would answer all your questions but they don't appear to be important queries about the book.

    Sorry if that sounds mean

    Sounds like you want us to do your homework! If I'm honest I don't think anyone will take the time to answer all that for you, if it was an idea for a paper then yeh, but not that. Would you answer all that if it was the other way round? Maybe a rule of thumb would be don't expect of people what you wouldn't do yourself. Good luck though.
