Clear writing, basic explanations help to make the beginner genealogy person understand why to test and which test will be most helpful. The diagrams are very helpful, and additional resources are also provided. Although aimed at the Beginners, anyone who has begun testing and evaluating matches will benefit from this book. Highly recommended.
