This publication is the one English language reference that i'm conscious of and it's been so conscientiously researched that it took approximately 10-yr to write down. either authors are modelers, and wrote the ebook with a “modeler mindset”....This publication is maybe the most effective references at the Pucara, in any language. hugely recommended.
