Pretty good book. Moral of the story: observation is key to creating believable textures. Lots of practical advice, but it didn’t wow me. I guess the thing that makes it hard to write a book like this is that it is really an art, and therefore up to personal taste. I think this book is definitely worth the read, as it reveals a lot of common mistakes 3D artists make, but I don’t find myself referring back to it often. It’s probably worth reading a second time though.
