    Question Quick Question on Bridgmen Books?

    I am going to be buying a few books in a few days and i just want some feedback on one series of books.
    By an Author/Artists named:George Bridgman.In how much detail does he's explain his subject? are the examples visible?,and are is it hard to study from? and how many examples are there?

    Because there are some books out there that are pretty old and because they printed books back then differently.Some of the drawings or examples are hard to see.



    Thank's

    yeah all the bridgman stuff suffers a little from printing.

    That aside, buy them. He's one of the best there is, IMO

    the way he constructs the figure and how he shows it has been helpful to many.

    I also advise buying the smaller separate books vs the "Complete" one. I find more helpful information in those, vs the fact the info is condensed and compiled in the other.

    Bridgman's books are probably the ones that helped me the most, so YES, I recommend them. I really like the "complete" ones, I think that they are more practical to me.
    I am not really sure, but I think that the Bridgman's books' copyright have expired, if so, you can download it for free at Internet-Archive or Google Books, but believe me: these books are much more useful in real paper.

    They're dirt cheap also, so just get as much of them as you can afford.
