Though it's brimming with information, I find the book hard to read. I am distracted by the blend of interviews, checklists, and advertisements on divided pages. Though I have not viewed the latest edition I imagine is a similar presentation.
When Crystal contacted me a number of years about "advertising" in her next edition I was surprised by the concept. But perhaps that is how she is able to publish and update it on a regular basis. It is a useful resource, particularly for makeup artists more than stylists, though a quite different style from my own book.
This is part of a series of styling book reviews.
