This book was written as a directory of resources only and does not describe the resource in detail. I will leave that up to the website of the mentioned company or by a representative of the company with a phone call. Dow Creative Enterprises plans to produce an updated version of this book every year. You can get a free version of this as an eBook on www.Lulu.com.
