You have to love it the book is the only subject matter of its type to my knowledge currently in print It is also unique in assembling all of this information in one place I got the 1st edition many years ago Each subsequent edition and this latest is a marginal improvement, partly as to additional information of marginal usage, but also with better organization and indexing Anyone wanting to compound their own conventional types of photo chemistry black alternative processes varies from sufficient down to minimal you may have to fall back on the internet to fill out your knowledge of some of the uncommonly used processes If you get into such oddities, you will be doing that anyway This not a beginner s guide to DIY film developing There are many how to do it books out there, and most all of them are a better education for the newbe to film processing techniques. 5 stars for Kindle version The book has seen major update to previous version, which I waited out and am glad I did Kindle version viewed on any high resolution screen is going to be great for any purchaser not sure about paperwhite, but that is my quibble with that device once I started using a good tablet, the damn thing is just way too slow Having said that, why is this book NOT published in ring binding version A hardback would help keeping pages together, but paperback for a darkroom cookbook that is to be flipped all over all the time This is a major flaw of this publication and hard to understand.
