The book is beginning to show its age however since quite a bit of focus is put on techniques of improvising one's own glassware. The author's primary supporting claim is that glassware is a "watched" item. This view seems a little paranoid/outdated since the advent of procurement opportunities such as Ebay. However, some of the larger glassware devices described are perhaps interesting, in the "scaling up" section.
becuase of a self righteous book burner on this sight reviewing another book. She doesn't want anyone to learn how to make drugs and explosives. So in response Im going to read as much of it as I can get my hands on. HA! Suck it, up. This book, for what it is, is good. Well written and decently illustrated. It shows how to make a few peices of lab ware, key notes and tips on lab hiding and operation. It's really just a book of cliff notes, tips hints and precautions. No real chemistry at all. Make a seperatory funnel, fume hood, and my favorite... the ram proof door. That is a good idea... but if I might add... you could always hide the whole apparatus by hiding the auto springs inside the door. Any way... the author even says that the book is just a list of ideas and warnings. Worth reading though...something for everyone. As he says, a lab can be made for survival, resistance or medical reasons as well.
I think the author is genuine, sincere and dang well concerned with the well being of others... makers, users and enforcers. He's got my support.
-Recommendations to reader: If you have the time you can get this info other ways. If you don't have time and this is the first piece of literature you have had the opportunity to have exposure to, by all means read it. Other wise if you have the time, money, and a strong desire to learn and be thorough about it then see the list at the bottom of the page for much more in depth research, "Customers who bought titles by Jack B. Nimble also bought titles by these authors."
[Note to Author: I mean no disrespect to the author. After all I haven't written a book, but from a readers stand point you could use some more critiquing.]

Somewhat informative/interesting but it really does not tell you how to construct a clandestine drug lab or how to produce drugs - which is probably good. Read morePublished on March 10, 2013 by day tripper
The book has some good ideas for the novice chemist. But does not go into enough design information. Read morePublished on August 30, 2005 by S. Davis
