The book assumes you're not a beginning wood worker, so he's able to focus on essentials in a clear and concise manner, with a teaching style that guides you to acquire experience and a feel for what you're doing. There's much a flat-top luthier can pick up as well. Even if you never build an archtop, it's a great read.
