    Good, easy to understand, interesting!!

    This is probably the best book in world when it comes to the assembly of ground salutes (with the execption of the aierial bomb). I especially reccommend this book to novice pyrotechnists, as all the formulas on the book are accurate and come with appropriate warning. Unlike books like the anarchists cook book, this book is not for the suicidal.
