After reading the information that would be contained in the book, I was excited to receive it. However, I found it had a lot of nice illustrations with nice write-ups about the providers, but was pretty thin on the how-to. There was only 1 lesson I thought of any value. Unfortunately for me, I lost track of the purchase date and went past the time for return. I passed the book along, but now I wish I had demanded a refund despite the time that elapsed. So you'll know something about what I needed...I'm an interior design professional working in kitchen design and hoping to find a position as design director for a large custom cabinet manufacturer. I have the design experience and sketch fairly well, but I need to brush up and add to my skills in rendering and presentation. I absolutely love the beautiful renderings I see on Divine Design, and I wanted some pointers on achieving that quality. This book helped not at all, other than to show me other great renderings by other people. The book is horrendously overpriced for what it is. I just ordered a used copy of another book on marker rendering for less than $8 on Amazon. If that works out, I'll follow up with a recommendation. Hope this helps someone else.
