Reading this review that someone left on Amazon.com about The New Acrylics:
"I recently ordered this book and still have not received it, but I ordered it because I checked it out of the library & knew I had to own a copy 10 minutes after opening it.
I have read or perused many acrylic painting books in the last year, either via purchase or from the library. This is by far the best one I have seen yet, when it comes to giving you ideas on techniques you may not have even considered.
If I could give it 6 Stars, I would!"
