Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
book is very well versed. But title is deceiving as first couple chapters can make your head spin if you haven't had any engineering or outside training on the formulas and chemical properties that are discussed. A little more involved than for non metallurgist as title perceives

This book is very good for someone who wishes to know immediate info on the subjects that relate to metallurgy, however the wording of the book is quite difficult to understand, and comes with much detail that I feel detracts a straightforward focus while reading it just for curiosity, and takes much insight on trades involving metal work to identify with what the book is about and what the book could have use for future inquiries into metals like iron, soft metals, alloys, etc.
