- Not quite what I expected Review by Bethany
I just bought this, and realized it's focused almost exclusively on torches other than butane micro torches (there are a few pages here and there about them, but that's it). So for an absolute beginner such as myself, who only owns a butane micro torch, this is a little above my skill set. I'm definitely going to read it and try to apply it to the use of a micro torch, but thought that others at my end of the spectrum as far as experience should be aware of the tools the book seems to be primarily addressing. (I gave it four stars because it looks really helpful and detailed; I have not yet put it into use.)

- Everything you need to know and then some Review by Jo Ann
I really enjoyed the tips. Altough I'm a beginner, I thought I knew how to solder - except for a few melted bezels. There are invaluable tips in this book - one on how not to melt your bezels. And many others. Soldering isn't the most inspirational subject but this book is inspirational, especially with the projects at the end. I can't wait to go solder something.
