Review quote

"This book has most of the answers in a variety of writing styles, from highly technical to downright amusing. The neat thing about an anthology is that each chapter is self-contained, and you can browse like a brown trout among the caddis larvae before taking an offering."--"The Statesman-Journal (Portland, OR)"""show more
