From the Publisher
"View Camera Technique is in an astounding seventh edition...there's good reason for this perpetuity. This is a book that you will reference again and again." Shutterburg Feb 2000

"When you are a regular user of a view camera, View Camera Technique can save you a lot of money and frustration." - www.photocrack.com
Joseph A. Dickerson
There are lots of books out there that discuss view cameras and view camera technique, and some mighty good ones at that, but Stroebel's work is the benchmark by which the rest are measured.
