I really like this book,and every time I re-read it I like it even more (there is always something I learn) it is easy to follow and understand and I think It's an invaluable tool for any C-33 painting & decorating, contractor....
*as a side note I took the PDCA apprenticeship course in the late 1980's and Wolfgang Heinritz was a volunteer teacher of "faux marble" and "wood graining", basically the whole concept of faux painting etc....
I graduated from that course while at Bob Kunst painting inc. Wolf you made a difference in my life as a painter and now as a contractor THANK YOU so much for not just the book, but all the volunteer work with the students and sharing your gift with others....
