    Advanced Splicing

    This is defintely a book for someone with prior splicing experience. The written instructions were excellent, but the illustrations left a lot to be desired.

    Book is no help

    This book has the worse diagrams and very poor instructions that make it impossible for a novice to learn to splice or do anything else shown in this book. It is impossible to follow the diagrams or instructions. It might be of some use to someone who has done some previous splicing.
