While I can't rate this book with5 stars, I think it's an excellent book if you've some extra cash. The pictures of Gaudi's ironwork are probably worth the price. While the techniques shown are pretty basic, and the authors skill is not going to overwhelm you, neither will it intimidate you. I really like that the author is not fixated soley on traditional technique. Tradition has an important place in the blacksmithing craft, but it can be frustratingly slow and take an apprenticeship to aquire. Sometimes you just need to get something done, or have to make a profit and using a torch or grinder can make a lot of sense.
