Reviews

I love the idea of the 10-volume set. This is a great price point, and the topics appear to be diverse enough, that they will appeal very broadly. With good packaging and writing, this series could easily become a real staple in the industry. I love it. Andy Holcomb, Specialty Accounts; Broad-spectrum appeal should work well in market. Great price. John Wing, Wing-Aero
