5.0 out of 5 stars A must own for any serious pyrotechnician, February 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Chemistry of Pyrotechnics: Basic Principles and Theory, Second Edition (Hardcover)
It's not a very lengthy book, but it is packed with useful information and handy charts. Any serious pyrotechnician or shell builder should have this in their library. You should have some chemistry background if you expect any of this to make sense. A bargain at twice the price.

Well written, covers the chemistry, how ingredients work with each other, their properties and problems. This book is not a do it yourself manual and I did not purchase it for that use. If you are interested in how pyrotechnics work, this is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the BEST books on the subject by far., November 17, 2011

This review is from: Chemistry of Pyrotechnics: Basic Principles and Theory, Second Edition (Hardcover)
This is one of those essential books that every professional or licensed hobbyist involved with fireworking should own. This really is a great book that takes you deeply into the chemistry and physics of what goes on with these compositions as the are put into use. Knowing what is in this book will help you tweak your formulae so that they do exactly what you want them to do when you use them. Highly recommended for anyone interested in Pyrotechnics though none of the experiments should be attempted without the proper training and licensing.

This review is from: Chemistry of Pyrotechnics: Basic Principles and Theory, Second Edition (Hardcover)
This book is a concise and interesting study of combustion chemistry from the standpoint of pyrotechnics. The discussions of molecular level combustion reactions is informative and very readable.
