    It says it all!

    This book is a must have, period! If you are an enthusiast or a beginner you must get this book, it is worth its weight in gold. I use it as my reference when I'm not quite sure about somthing. I value this book very much. If you're not sure of who it is, or where it is, or what it is, and even why it is. Turn to it and 9 out of 10 it will help to fully understand. I think I will buy a fire proof safe for mine. Trust me you want be sorry.
