The book is an introduction to the various materials that can be said to fall under the purview of ceramics, right from earthenware to dental ceramics, from ceramic spark plugs to everyday concrete. Each page is dedicated to one type of material or product with its brief details and there is information on websites and manufacturers as well. The book is good on what it promises to deliver and is strictly for someone looking for this kind of information. It may not interest the ceramics hobby enthusiast.
