Henry Pleasants died this month 1/5/2000. We have lost a great man. Maybe the publishers will notice this and reprint his books. Finally.
Grab a copy for your library while you can still get hold of one. This is one is a keeper.
Mine is falling apart I consult it so much.
I guess I loved it to pieces.
