This book is very discouraging! Since I saw good reviews about it, i decided to buy it. Unfortunately when I start to read it I understood that over great topics hidden superficial information. It has good contents topics but very poor informative part. How bad you must be to confuse sealer with liner, and advice your reader to put base over the liner. In chapter 16 there is catastrophic incomprehension of Authors what they are writing about. No structure (varnishes, sealers, liner bases) just poor general description of CaOH, ZnOxEug, ZnP, PolyCement and GIC.
