1.0 out of 5 stars Reads like a Term Paper or part of a Masters Thesis September 3, 2010
Verified Purchase
The entire "paper", I'd hardly call it a book, isn't worth $20.00. The author constantly refers to illustrations in books that are loooongggg out of print, and having done so makes it extremely difficult to learn anything from it. You won't like this "paper" unless you happen to own or have access to these books (referred to by the author): Roubo, Andre-Jacob: L'Art du menuisier, 1761-1788; Moxon, Joseph:Mechanick exercises, 1703; Nicholson. Peter: The mechanic's companion, 1832; Diderot, Denis: L'encyclopedie, ou dictionnaire raisonne des sciences, des arts et des metiers, 1751-1765; Petrie, Sir William Matthew Flinders: Tools and weapons illustrated by the Egyptian collection in University College, London, 1917

1.0 out of 5 stars No, No, No, No, No! January 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From page one, there is reference to the many schematics, none of which are in this Kindle version. Since it says things like, "Note the differences in design", the text has little meaning without them. I guess you could get something from just reading the text, but it's not really a book without the illustrations, in this case. IOW, they're really not optional, and they're not here. I appreciate the effort people are putting out to get books online, but they need to think, too. This is just a waste of everybody's time,

1.0 out of 5 stars Wast of Time and Money March 29, 2012
Illustrations are missing in the Kindle version so the book is worthless. Don't bother with this one. Not sure why it's even being offered in this format.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but lacking
I found it lacking in the early frontier home made tools for special purposes.
Although this might not be fair, I did expect a little more pioneer basic items.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK
It was short and sweat. Not many pictures, but it was a short history. I was looking for an explanation of what types of tools were used during this 200 year time span. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars No Pictures
The text is OK but the book desperately needs pictures. It is essentially useless unless you already know what all these tools looked like.

you really need the pictures to see what they are talking about in this e-book, save the storage space or get the real book
