    Great Product (Posted on 1/26/2010)
    Review by Dave
    By far the best bodywork book I've seen. Written in the 40's or 50's, this book reflects that great time when if you had something to say, you said it plainly and clearly, and if you didn't know what you were talking about, you went out of business. I've read several bodywork books by "experts" and "veterans of the business", and I was sincerely amazed at how much of nothing they said. This book is a man's product; has the information you expect, to the point, sound, accurate, decent price. and very little BS.
