   Essential book for any craftsman
I enjoyed this book as it gives a detailed description of the different tools, techniques and process with blacksmithing. The author brings it a notch up by adding the section called Project. It emphasizes the necessary techniques and how to practice them.

   Clear and great for beginners.
The book is very clear and explains the basics very well. Note : This is no replacement for learning from a real person! This book is very good for guiding a beginner smith after he knows the correct technique and so on.

   Strongly Recommend!!
Awesome book, shows introduction steps like tapers and ranks projects according to difficulty. I would recommend this to any beginner and honestly anyone who has an interest in metal work. The only con is that they haven't come out with a second edition of which I am aware.

   Not new conditon
However, it is not listed on this flat black book as impossible to view. It has a ding in the left and two muds that are not able to be removed on either side. They appear like glue and so the book seems to have been dropped and handles with hands that may have had glue on them. I'm very frustrated, as this is a gift. It could be time consuming to return, as we are close to the holiday and may not even be available. Use clean hands and handle books with care. This is definitely not a new condition.
