Format: Paperback
A schoolfriend who recently tracked me down after 30 years sent me this book. He obviously knows me better than I thought. If, like me, you have always wondered how things work, how to fix things, how to reproduce finishes etc., and have a moderately well-equipped garage or workshop, then this is the book for you! Some of you may recall the excellent style of 'Curly' or 'LBSC' who wrote for Model Engineer decades ago; Guy Lautard is from the same mould, and can teach anyone how to use tools and make things which will impress their friends. I look forward to reading the next one.

This publication is a must have for anyone who is either a homemachinist, or has a home machinist on their gift giving list.
I havenot completed it yet, but it satisfied my initial test of opening it randomly at 5 different places, and reading a portion of the page. At all five spot checks I was unable to readonly a sentence. On virtually every one, I read the whole page. I couldn't put it down.
I have never seen better writing from a standpoint of addressing readers of varying levels of competence, and additionally from a standpoint of being both informative, and entertaining.
I have immediately ordered one for a brother-in-law who is difficult to buy presents for. And who will love this book at least as much as I. Possibly more. The existance of 2 sequels assures me of worry free shopping for him for the next several years.
