Mr Slater's books on Heraldry are richly illustrated in colour (befitting the subject) and are very readable and descriptive. They really bring the subject to life.
One issue I have however is that he has published a number of books on the same subject and it is very difficult to identify which one to purchase (hence the four star rating). I have seen at least four different but similar titles (my comments above are based on the first listed): `The Illustrated Book of Heraldry: An International History of Heraldry and its Contemporary Uses', `Heraldry Today: The Ancient Art and its Modern Applications' (also known by the title `Living Heraldry'), `The Complete Book of Heraldry: An International History of Heraldry and its Contemporary Uses' and `The World Encyclopedia of Flags and Heraldry: An International History of Heraldry and Its Contemporary Uses'. All are published in the last few years and there may be others - things are further complicated by the fact that the same book can have different ISBNs (that's the case with mine anyway).
