OK, so it's not a page turner and it won't top a best seller list. But for a cataloging student or anyone needing to polish up on MARC records (don't forget to check your copy cataloging every once in a while :) ), this book is a very friendly, easy to reference source. The authors are not kidding when they warn you not to use this book to catalog (thank you, OCLC's Librarian Toolbox LOL), but it is useful to have close at hand for refreshers.
