Sidebar: As you know, I ordered 2 copies. One for me and one for a prize.
I've read mine cover to cover.
It is really a fabulous insight into the working of gemological instruments.
It is so well written that I feel anyone, in any field, could understand it and utilize the concepts.

It illustrates Dr. Hannemans total comprehension of the subject. And I dare say, the reader will have a Total Comprehension of instrumentation by the time they finish the book.

If you are not the winner, just order the book! Trust me.

I couldn't agree more. I have owned mine for several years now and love it. If my name does get drawn I will give it away here on the forum in some manner. Unless this is an updated edition. Then I will give my old one away. :)
