I and others have posted about this book in a previous thread, but I thought I would add some info to this category in hopes of saving some poor sole from falling victim to this poor excuse for a book.
If you have enjoyed the previous editions as many of us have, the 19th edition brings no joy. It is full of great photos, but fails miserable with it's poor articles. While the previous editions were full of well written articles, with lots of technical data on varied subjects, the 19th edition has only 16 articles. There is just not the variety of writers also. There is one article each by Craig Boddington & Fred Zeglin, the rest are by lesser known authors.
I am not going to waste any more time on this review, simply because it does not warrant it.
In as plain english as I can make it, it is a waste of money, do not buy it,
