The author goes to great pains to explain what various wood finishes actually are and how they work, and to debunk common myths about finishing. I learned more about varnishes and oils in an hour of skimming selected sections than I could find in all my other books combined. Now I understand why some things I've tried haven't worked as I'd hoped and how to avoid making mistakes in the future. Highly recommended.
