a wonderful checklist for those of us that have spent 30 years in the composite industry. It is a wonderful tool chest of knowledge that we all can use for review. This book is very much needed in the industry, to help train new people in the craft that most of us learned by the school of trial and error
I no longer see this book as it is being read by everyone around here
very impressed with this new book.
