Overall, this book contains a good mix of text and graphics and explains how and why things are done. The book is quite massive and takes patience and time and get through. I got lazy a few times and tried to skip some sections of the book but realized upon skimming that pretty much every page of this book is packed with important and concise information.
The paper and print quality of the book is average at best but it's to be expected due to its breadth and cost (relatively cheap). I think it was a fair tradeoff. But I didn't know it was possible to make paper this thin. Underlining with a pencil shows up on the back of the page.
