I agree with the other reviewers: an insider critique, still current, down to earth, etc.

That said, I'll add that I much prefer reading this scanned PDF copy of the original book (2nd ed) from http://archive.org/ because the OCR ebook I bought leaves a lot to be desired. While PDF book files are quite large, to me, they give as close as possible reading experience of the bound edition as possible. I like seeing the pages intact, which include original numbering, layout, typography, and illustrations. While OCR occasionally inserts little clip art versions of original illustrations and a few of the first and last pages of the book, the illustrations become disjointed, separated from the text they were meant to enhance or support. No longer does the text envelop these little drawings. Sadly, OCR will always add words and symbols or delete whole words altogether that its digitizing process mangled. In short, many thanks to the person who added this version of Hawes marvelous book.
