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