I wanted to love this book, I really did. I sort of know the person who wrote it, and I really want to learn this craft. But, it didn't quite do it for me. The photography is quite nice, and it's a good, solid intro book to the topic, but my beefs are:

But again, if you're working with ceramics, it's a great reference.
