Essential Guide? What a joke!
As incredible as it may seem, this book contains ZERO pictures, drawings or graphics of any kind! The author apparently thinks you can just conjure images in your head as he explains concepts like scale, radii, turnouts, bench work construction, track design and wiring! All of the topics are treated very superficially in this inexplicably brief work which contains only 80 pages on an iPad (there are about 20 pages of glossary and references). How anyone can advertise this as an "essential guide" is preposterous. I want a refund.
