Looks good, I am planning on buying it. From a quick look at the sections that are viewable on the web, the explanations look clear, suitably detailed and authoritative, and it looks like there is plenty of good photographic material for comparison with your own work. I think this will be good to use as a single resource, rather than browsing the web with its mix of high and low quality material and its sometimes discordant statements.
