Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Professional's Guide to Pyrotechnics: Understanding and Making Exploding Fireworks (Paperback)
I've got to say that this is really pretty poor, the index is poorly laid out and the reading lists not great either, the writing is awful and the whole thing has the impression of a (US) highschool chemistry class gone wrong.
When I got the book I initially thought that perhaps I was being too critical but I shared it with two contacts, one of whom is a pyrotechnician planning and directing displays and another who makes fireworks and they both said that it was written in a convoluted and inaccessible style. A lot of the jargon is window dressing to make the simple exercises here in appear more complex but to the unacquainted reader it will probably make most of the projects plain impossible.
