I picked this book up at the library based on some reviews at Amazon. It’s priced at $15 for 112 pages, including the index. It’s a very basic, bare bones primer about the watercolor medium. In my opinion, there is no such thing as learning watercolor quickly. It’s like most things: practice is the best teacher, and you never stop learning. But you don’t read a short, small book and *bam* it just all falls into place.
So if you’ve never picked up a watercolor brush, and you’re trying to decide if it’s worth investing in a starter set of paints, a brush and some paper, this might be a book for you to check out. If you know the basics about watercolor, you probably won’t learn anything new. It might work as a quick refresher if you’ve been away for a few years, though. I don’t think I’d buy this, even if I knew nothing. I’d borrow it, maybe take a note or two, and invest in a reference book I might refer to again down the road.
My two cents. I hope you found it useful.
