Our school used this book for one school year as advanced training information. Our students loved the book. The material is well organized. The chapters are short, specific and focused on the objectives. I enjoyed the book and it is very informative and well put together.
It's wonderful, not only for estheticians, but for those working with doctors or estheticians getting into the chemical side or learning more about the products. I would use this text for going more into certain areas. This book would be in the school library for any and all to see and read.
