    falls apart

    the information in the book is satisfactory. however, the binding is of the poorest quality. i purchased it new and as i turned each page for the first time, it fell out. i have read almost half of the book, which means that half of the pages are now detached from the book. don't buy it unless you need it for a class, like i did... i can't return it right now, because i need it for my class & it may take several weeks for the new copy to arrive.

    It is an excellent book for Americans working on heritage documentation

    It is well written and provides an overview and instructions on standards in heritage documentation in the USA, it lacks a bit update on new technologies
