Hello Mike,

I have often seen this book listed on ebay and been tempted, in your opinion do you think it is a valuable addition to the library?

Cheers
Paul :)

Hi Paul......

Bought mine straight from the author for 30.00 Pounds and have used it quite often especially when I am looking for s specific subject, title or author......

If you can find one cheaper its a good addition to any library......
