To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The content is exceptional, as expected; however, the quality of the material is disappointing. I was expecting a full-color book, not black and white. The paper is so thin you can see through the page to what is printed on the reverse, and the fact that it’s in black and white makes using the photos as reference completely ridiculous. I would not recommend this cheap, black and white version.
The material covered in this book is bar-none the best I've encountered anywhere. It's informative, helpful, insightful and educational. However the material of the paper, and the quality of the images provided leave a LOT to be desired. You cannot highlight or mark the pages without them going through. The images are all black and white, which defeats the purpose for several of the example images provided. The pages themselves are porforated for easy removal if you want to create a spiral-bound or binder version of the material, however it also leads to pages easily detaching if you arent careful with how you transport/treat the book. Overall the book is great for material, but awful if you wanted to highlight, write, or use this anywhere near some of the suggested exercises as the thin material means several pages would be ruined with just one drop of anything liquid.
Info is great, but the front was damaged, and many of the pages were stuck together. Also a little grease stain on the front cover. I need this book for a class so I don't have time to return it before.
