I was thinking about reading the first one because you mentioned it was for new people like me, but 100 pages seems a bit light for the amount that should be covered...unless you advise otherwise I will be going for the second choice. After a long day of using my moisture detector on the vessel I cannot think of anything I would rather do than to sit and read a good book. Now the only question is if I want to learn more about my job, so go off in to some fantasy land.
