3but I can't really recommend it.
By Dylan
Explanations are a bit unclear. If you're buying this you probably don't have a choice, but I can't really recommend it.

4It would have been nice if there was some colored pictures in the book ...
By Amazon Customer
It was well organized and structured. It would have been nice if there was some colored pictures in the book because black, white, and blue got kind of tedious to read. However the information in the book is solid.
