About the Author
Leonardo Lospennato was born in Buenos Aires in '68–at the heart of an Italian family. He lives in Berlin, Germany, with his wife Andrea and with Tango, their black miniature schnauzer. Son of a manager and an artist, Leo became a bit of both when he started designing instruments and setting up a company to bring them to the market. Curious by nature and inspired by a Renaissance spirit, he became a computer engineer, pursued a masters degree in marketing and management, worked many years for companies like IBM and eBay on both sides of the Atlantic, and published articles as a journalist–all while adding English, Italian and German languages to his native Spanish along the way. Truth be told, the "Renaissance spirit" also shows up in the form of a shameless affair he maintains with Italian cuisine–a mix of heritage and hobby. But in the whole of this history, what remains a leitmotiv is his passion for the ancient art of creat-ing musical instruments, an infatuation that began when he put together his first bass, at 16. Creating something out of nothing. Searching for meaning. Chasing the utopia of perfection. Being a designer does not require much more than that. Nor anything less.

Again, this is a very good read and you will not be disappointed. Even if you do not want to build a guitar and just want to learn how to take care of the guitar you currently own, this is a very useful reference. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
This one offers information to consider before start with the building process. For me, it was amazing to read this before my first build, and now, when I have several instruments I've built, the book still has value and has proven be useul many times.
