The book goes from the painfully obvious -don't smoke cigarettes while painting- to vague and incomplete. There is an entire chapter on leading but only a short paragraph about actually melting the lead. Also this guy LOVES bondo.
Overall this book felt like a brief overview of paint and body work written to paint and body professionals. Or a few decent magazine articles spread thin to create a book. It does have lot's of nice color pictures
