This work is a good complement to The Text of the Old Testament: An Introduction to the Biblia Hebraica by Ernst Würthwein, to the Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible by Emanuel Tov (both in English) and also to the Manual da Bíblia Hebraica: Introdução ao Texto Massorético – Guia Introdutório para a Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia by Edson de Faria Francisco (in Portuguese).
