Book Review: “The Pessach Haggadah by Rabbi Yosef Adler”

I purchased this Haggadah a couple of weeks ago because I thought that the book contained great Pessach insights from Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik. However, I am very disappointed and should have known better. The cover says “Based on the Shiurim of Rabbi Soloveitchik” ! And BASED here means that there are only very few commentaries. 
This Haggadah basically contains of the regular Haggadah text and very few Rabbi Soloveitchik commentaries. At the end of the book, the author, Rabbi Yosef Adler, dedicates more pages expressing his own opinion than on Rabbi Soloveitchik teachings.
I cannot recommend buying this book because I expected more Soloveitchik insights !
