Editorial Reviews

Review

"....A long-needed collection of information on how specific problems have been approached and solved....To me the most valuable use of Technical Brief is not how to copy how someone else solved a particular problem, but to see the approach, materials, and techniques that were used which give me an idea how I might approach the problems I need to solve." Robert R. Scales, Ph.D., Dean of USC School of Theatre
