This is a decent starting point for someone who wants to learn ArcInfo. However, it should only be used in consultation with a professional. There are many many details left out of the book. There are many many pitfalls to learning ArcInfo that are not included. Use this book, but don't expect to learn ArcInfo from it; truly learning ArcInfo is a process that takes a few years at the least.
