SUMMARY- For a tiny 25 page booklet, it packs a lot of important information - particularly why certain problems occur. I feel bad for anyone just starting out and not having this handy little booklet on hand. The formulas in the back are only helpful if you have access to the diamond-shaped Reddig-glo color chips, but the rest of the book is priceless.
