    The finest comprehensive hair removal guide I have read thus far.

    Professionals might find the material redundant as they will probably have much of the material in several different sources in their libraries HOWEVER this book will be a wonderful addition as it includes information on all types of hair removal under one cover! It also includes a chapter on threading and another on laser physics and laser hair removal. While some textbooks incorrectly classify laser hair removal as permanent, this book does not. Students will probably cherish this book. Complicated ideas are made simple to understand with easy to follow text accompanied by wonderful photos and graphics. I suggest that students use this book as a study guide as it is indeed comprehensive yet far lighter than the heavy textbooks you prefer not to lug. For the consumer who wants to make informed choices as to hair removal options, Milady's Hair Removal Techniques, A Comprehensive Manual by Helen R. Bickmore, will help GUIDE you which is refeshing after so many try to SELL you.
