No issues with book quickly after it was released and in good condition.The book itself is interesting. I think this may be one of the few books I've seen recently that is a totally difference I haven't seen before. A cross between jewelry making and stained glass. Interesting and some good instructions...nice pictures to go with instructions. All-in-all very pleased with my purchase.

Some very intesting projects! I haven't used a soldering iron in years (since I was into stained glass). I'm into torches now. But I am so excited to start again with the iron. Have to dig it out and get started.

This book I love. I have learned a lot about soldering jewelry. It is so easy to read and follow. It is my favorite learning soldering book that uses the iron solderer and not the torch. I don't want to use the torch and had a very hard time finding a book that is dedicated to the iron. I am learning a lot. I am so glad I came across this book. Wish I could find more.

Very well written with easy to follow directions. Contains some great ideas.

I swore I would not buy another soldering book but this one has many ideas I would never have thought of and have not seen before!

Bought this book to help provide ideas of soldering for stained glass, but enjoyed it so much, that now I'm going to give jewelry making a shot!

Great book with great step-by-step instructions.

I am enjoying this new technique. I wish there was information about soldering iron suggested settings as I am used to torch soldering.
