It is a big and heavy book! It would have had 5 stars but only gets 4 stars due to the print quality. It is a great book. Evening's writing style suits me and does explain everything so well. Perfect from that point of view. The problem is with the quality of the paper. The print is sharp and clear but the paper is a 'semi' coated cartridge which makes the images look 'blotchy'. The ink 'soaks' in too much rather than sitting on top of the sheet looking bright and clear. The end result is the images look rather flat and blotchy. Typical of a publisher cutting costs and using a lesser quality paper. Should have used a sheet like a fully coated art...the same as other books I have from Martin Evening... Shame, because it spoils the book. (BTW, the first one delivered was damaged in transit. The replacement was sent ok but the print quality issue was in both of the samples I received).
