I bought a SouthOrd lock pick set a few weeks ago. I didn't buy this book at the time because I was being cheap and thought I could figure out how to use the picks on my own. WRONG - I had absolutely no clue. I got the book in the mail this afternoon and it's amazing! The diagrams are outstanding and It's so easy to understand. I picked my first lock in half an hour. I'm so glad I invested a few bucks and finally got the book.
