More academic than aimed at teaching. No step-by-step here, but lots of short essays on each of the many techniques discussed, as well as pictures of intermediate and *very* advanced pieces illustrating the technique (and some in-the-shop shots of how an aspect of the technique is performed). Interesting but ultimately not useful to me, a beginning practitioner.
My copy has a different book sleeve than this one, but I assume it is the same book. VERY techinical in-depth information on the sponsored techinniques. A LOT of time (nearly 1/4 of the book) is dedicated to glass casting. A hard, but informative read.
