According to Terry Butler Pres. of the SIBAA -
( Ships-in-Bottles Association of America.)

 I must have 50+ books on the subject of Ships-in-Bottles. This became the most recent book in my collection and I put it as one of my favorites! It is all in FULL COLOR with many illustrated instructions for every aspect of ship bottling. I was surprised at how much info was packed into the soft cover 188 pg book, and how much I learned from this one that I hadn't from my other SIV books. No matter what your skill level, i believe anyone could learn something new from this book. I have both of Dan Berg's books. The other is geared more for beginners. This one would appeal to ALL ship bottlers or beginners. This is easily MY favorite of the two books.
