For example, the author discusses of how and why you should expose for the shadows, and develop for the highights, and why even a negative that is overexposed by two stops is still usable versus one that is underexposed. Since the negative reverses everything, it is impossible to recover from an underexposed negative for the shadows, since you can't get detail that isn't there, no matter how long you develop. However, film that is overexposed for the shadows can still be used because there are ways to deal with the highlights during developing.
Overall, I found the book full of useful info like this and can recommend it to photography buffs who want a more in-depth understanding of the processes.
The book is very specific about teaching you how to get good negatives, which will in turn, help you make better prints. That's always a good thing.
