"Hatheway has compiled a true opus magnum… Quite simply, if you’re not sure about gas works and your job requires that you are, then this is £130 of investment whose return will be rapid and enduring. ‘Treat the contents as a starting point for your own site and waste characterisation: use the contents to plan, test and season your results’."
