I'm not a big fan of this book.

What I don't like:
-The information is unorganized, and there are plenty of places that need some serious editing. I really can't stand incorrect grammar (obviously unintentional), especially when there's so much of it that I start focusing on that instead of the subject or the story.

-They often do not fully flesh out explanations.. especially when mentioning technical details (which, is ok for us engineers, but hard for other readers). It seems like they were focusing on the number of pages and the layout more than the information in the chapters.

-There's "further reading" bibliography-type information at the end of every chapter.

-The side footnotes are ok with me, but often, the information is not really important or interesting enough to be on the same page as what you're reading about. I'd, at the very most, put them at the end of the chapter.

What I like:
-Although I haven't actually had a chance to use them, or even look through them carefully, the latter half of the book is full of charts and information on specific materials/processes.

-It has a very clean, simple layout, which looks nice.

-It's relatively short.

This is a great book that gives tons of useful and interesting information about tons of materials. But, when I received this book, the front cover had been bent back and flattened during the shipping process, leaving a crease across the entire height of the book. If you use/play with a lot of different media, this is the book for you!

This book contains all the production techniques and materials that a student should know and it is written in a clear way.

This is a very great book. I got it as a new one and the delivery was on-time, in a big box full of tiny white "against-beaten" particles!
