Purchased this book along with "Technical Theater for Nontechnical People" and have found that they compliment each other well. Work as a volunteer technician in church and found the informtion helpful. While the book covers the tech side very well, it also provides insight into the other folks that are part of the production. I like that aspect. Overall, I was very satisfied with this purchase.
