It provides an explanation of how materials work and the techniques that can be used in all types of photography. An excellent book. $6

To buy send me a private message (PM) with your email address for use in communicating; I will provide my email address via PM.
If you use PayPal I will ship to the address PayPal provides.
When you pay please tell me what you are buying!
I can give practical confirmation to that. This is the book I used as a starting template to build my current permanent darkroom. Lots of good ideas and considerations available. Especially if your target space is in a basement, as mine was.
