Its a book that gives you an insight in all the facets of fireworks. It sometimes however does not go as deep into subjects as i would have liked ,but its probably a pleasant too read masterpiece by not doing so. It explanes a lot and in regard of safety features it scores very high in my book. So if you are interestit in firework the art the science or the technique this is the book too buy,i at least can safely work on somewhat nicer projects for next newyears in a safe setting .
be safe , greatings, arjan
My sincerely thanks to Dr. Shimizu for this beautiful book
It's definitely not the slickest presentation, nor is it full of color pictures. The text looks like it came out of a standard typewriter, rather than being typeset, and the illustrations are primarily hand-drawn. Instead of "glitz", what this book gives you is simple, practical information about the chemistry of fireworks, the art and techniques needed to produce various effects cleanly and effectively, and the safety precautions needed to do so safely.
Takeo Shimizu is an expert (possibly *the* expert) in this field, and his writing reflects a long career full of practical experience. You will not go wrong by adding this book to your library. It is an invaluable reference book, and widely considered to be one of the few standard texts (along with Lancaster's book Fireworks Principles and Practice) in this industry.
