Having been in the coatings industry for over 30 years, I know how useful the Gardner-Sward Manual can be. For years I have relied on the 14th edition of this fine book to answer many of my paint-testing questions, but a lot has changed in the industry since it was published in 1995. I know a lot of hard work has gone into preparing the new and updated 15th edition, and I am really looking forward to it. --Dwight Weldon, President, Weldon Laboratories
