There is so much great information I had to write a review. Short is so detailed in her explanations, using “case studies” to see the entire process, start to finish. Her level of expertise is evident and I am thrilled to have this book, with great pictures and even her thoughts to read and learn from. {...} I am confident that this book will be a treasured and trusted resource on my shelves. I highly recommend this book if you are even slightly interested in this topic.
