Makes short work of making fine strip cuts of herbs. Good addition to any kitchen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book for rustic style woodworking, April 5, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Roy Underhill has always fascinated me with the objects he can make using antique handtools. This book features more actual projects than his other books. As usual it is well written and the overall feel of the layout and projects is remeniscent of a book one would find pre-industrial revolution.

Well worth adding to a library.

1.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but......, December 7, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Two people I work with have taken the information in this book and put it to use. Both have lost weight and claim to feel much better. Which is why I decided to buy and read it.

The premise seems plausible, but there is no data supporting the conclusions save the author's statement that he has done a particular test on a number of people and found it supports his premise. But nowhere does he explain how he even met the basic principles of scientific research. Book has been around a long time, so it must fill a need gap somewhere.

My blood type is AB+, supposedly the "newest" blood type to appear which combines both the good and bad of types A & B. However, in one individual a good characteristic of A may be a bad characteristic in another. The author points out, correctly, that only 5% of the world's population is AB. Not knowing what the population size of his test subject's are/were, it still seems very unlikely he could have tested a significant number of AB's to draw any meaningful conclusions. Indeed, the chapter treating this blood type rambles.

As a diabetic, I found his information on controlling this disease relative to blood type to be counter to some American Diabetes Association accepted practices. I am not about to jepordize my health care on such little evidence.

Just glancing through the various "diets", there didn't seem to be much difference in them & I didn't think the information was valid enough to spend my time comparing them in detail.

Curious about new slants and thoughts, read on; looking for a tried and true diet, look elsewhere.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellet technique, December 7, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Book is excellent at expanding what was once a very small and difficult part of gardening. The examples presented were inspiring and the technique was well explained and easy to follow.
