  • Fantastic

    By sorry4ever
    3/22/18 Wonderful book with a lot of information. I have several books of this type and they are all very helpful. Just make sure you wear your eyeglasses or contact lenses because the print is small. However, you can double-tap on the page to zoom in. Check out the other book by the same authors. Very nice and not overpriced. Love, love, love. Thanks.
