I purchased this book about 2 years ago and use it contantly it not only for personal use but teaching at an Interior Design College. It is a great basic text that covers all aspects of 2D & 3D without getting bogged down in too much theory. My copy is getting a bit "dog eared" and worn through frequent use and the reason I'm writing this review is I went on -line to buy a replacemnt and decided to recommend this book to Alabris members. Francis Ching's other books are great as well particularly Gesign Drawing but is more for the experienced practioner.
