There is no way to zoom on any of the images. This is useless.
would’ve been better if you allow us to zoom in...
I am currently a college student in South Korea, trying to get a job in footwear industry. I am also taking classes at school from a professor who has more than 25 years of career in the industry. I have found your websites doing assignments that he gave us, and ended up buying this. The book seems pretty useful so far since there are many pictures,(we students simply don’t get many chances to see what’s really going on in the field) and also the book seems contain basically most of things we learn at school. Unfortunately, it’s true that you can’t zoom in, so you won’t be able to see some of pics clearly. I personally hope to see the spec sheets with detail item list. However again, I wouldn’t say this book is useless, on the contrary, you might be able to find many useful and practical pieces of info if you wish to work for the industry.
