First, let's acknowledge that there is just too little attention placed on this very important topic. Deforestation and resource depletion has been the downfall of many cultures, and will contribute to ours here in the U.S. if we don't wake up. Coppicing, in addition to it's practical and environmental benefits, teaches how to THINK about resources. The scope of the book is ambitious with a lot of attention to woodland acquisition and management, coppicing crafts, marketing, ecosystems, and wildlife. It has a decent amount of good photos. What I thought it lacked was nuts and bolts of how to start new coppice forests and different agroforestry species and products. This comes somewhat from the differences in our situation in the U.S. where our mission will not be to manage ancient structured woodlands that have become fallow, rather to start fresh and create new permaculture based forests. If you're in a hurry, as I was, by all means buy this book, buy a billhook and get started! If you're in the U.S. and especially if you can only budget for one book on the subject, you should also consider the book (in the works) by Dave Jacke and Mark Krawczyk titled "Coppice Agroforestry" which promises to be more comprehensive relative to species database, and more directed to our situation here in the U.S.

Coppicing and Coppice Crafts is stronger on woodlot management than it is on Coppice crafts. Further it is strongly based on the type of trees found in England
rather than in the US. It probably more useful to a British or Irish audience. Some of the tools such as a wedge for splitting material and the use of foot powered material holders (a shaving horse) appear in Eric Sloan's A Museum of Earl\y American Tools, 1964 and A Reverence for Wood, 1965.

This is a passionate book about coppice practice and some uses for coppice wood. It is primarily designed to help someone buy a woodlot (in the UK) and manage the coppice thereon. It discusses some basics of coppicing and offers a few uses for the coppiced wood, but really doesn't go into much depth on coppice crafts, or specific techniques for hands on managing the coppiced woodlot. To be honest, I expected more from this, both in terms of coppice techniques and especially crafting. Still, a good reference to add to the library.

A well written, entertaining read. Very nicely designed and attractively laid out, with beautiful line drawings and photographs.
I am trying to bring back an old coppice wood, and will be coming back to this book, both for inspiration and practical advice, again and again.
