When he calls himself the wizard he really is not kidding. Simply amazing ideas and painting secrets. Really gets into how important it is to prep. I really enjoyed reading this and learned a lot. I would recommend this for anyone trying to paint any kind of anything in the house. The book layout makes it easy to read through and find sections that you need right away. When it comes time to paint my new walls, I'll probably buy this book's just that good!
