Yes, there's many aspects of the work that will not, perhaps, apply to my studies, but equally there are others which I wish I had known sooner. It contains mainly straightforward tips, for example how to save time if going to the Public Record Office, and, even at its deepest level, doesn't become so "academic" as to turn off the casual reader.
Of most interest to me were the chapters "At the library," "At the record office," and "Maps." Having used all three in my own work, some of the idiosyncracies that I have found are now becoming clear.
Thoroughly recommended to anyone just starting out, or anyone who isn't sure how to start out!
