There is much to recommend this volume. It has the tang of a workshop that worked. It is practical down to the design of record sheets. It can be knocked around in the lab or dropped in a puddle without fear of the cost of a replacement. And it is strictly necessary. Experts are brought together; they give their opinions on areas they know best; a protocol is drawn up for what minimal records to take if time is short, and what more to undertake if the opportunity arises.
