" The book is extremely well written, copiously illustrated with helpful photographs, and free of the mistakes of fact and production that are sometimes encountered.
I have been asked many times by clients to recommend a compact and accessible book, but couldn't. Mr Ells has given us that book, a thoroughly worthwhile addition to the literature. "
