Does anyone here own "Japanese Kitchen Knives" by Hiromatsu Nozaki? Is it worth buying? What info does the book entail?

I've been reading this all over again. I enjoy the book for it's covering of the basic 3 knives usuba, deba, and yanagi. If your interested in traditional Japanese knives I would suggest getting it :)
