I chose this book for research. Overall, the material is good but still lacks in detail for some of what I was hoping to find. I am still seeking more specific "how it was done" information. If the reader is not completely familiar with some techniques there is some areas not treated and there are jumps in information. Maybe I'm looking for something that has never been written. Maybe no one is interested in the more mundane details of day-to-day life.
