2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected 8 Jan 2005
By plasterman - Published on
Verified Purchase
This book was written in the UK. None of the terms or products are the same as the USA. Even the explanations of techniques are hard to understand because of all the english terms and slangs. I would not recommend this book because of this. 40.00 some dollars is a lot (too much)for this book and the knowledge it contains.
