" Looking at this book from the mindset of a complete novice, I have to say it is one of the best books on the subject I have ever seen. The subject of welding is technical and brings with it many specialist terms, but this book looks at everything in plain and simple English. This book makes welding sound easy. "

" I've been reading Green Roofs, A guide to their design and installation by Angela Youngman, and from now on this book will stay by my side as a fab source of facts and figures. In fact I thoroughly recommend it. The photography is superb, the subject has been thoroughly reearched and almost every point is backed up with a case study. "

" This book's subtitle of A Practical Guide to Joining Metal may not make your heart soar or your imagination leap, but read on for a few minutes and it may spark an idea you might never have dared consider: you could do your own welding. This volume is thorough and clear with a good range of relevant pictures and excellent beginner's notes, and it covers everything from model making to oxy-acetylene automotive work. "
