"The most important part of the book is of course the methods of fastening. In this part of the book, the author has done a very clever thing - consulting many people and many resources of what has been already published on this issue for their own methods. Believe me, I was surprized how many different methods there are. The simplicity of some of them and the complexity of the others is amazing."
