This is hardly a book. More like a little guide you can find in about 5 mins of searching on Google. Very disappointed! I read it in about 8mins! Now I'm returning it and looking for an actual book! It claims to be 54 pages. More like 20 by the time you factor in the huge font used and photos. If this was $3 it would be decent, but not for $10.

Worthless doesn't go low enough to describe my dismay at this book-let! Ok so it's 52 pages, no more like 20 pages after you realize the larger than normal font, the double and triple spacing between one and two sentence paragraphs, and the odd placement of photographs chews up a lot of space. Information is a muddling rehash of stuff found on the internet and presented in a confusing manner. Watch two or three 10 minute videos on blacksmithing on YouTube and you'll know more and have saved the cost of this book plus shipping! I'd send the book back but it's not worth my time to do so!

This is a very short and straight-forward book. I thought it would cover more things like techniques and projects, but it only explains the very basics of setting up a blacksmith shop on a budget and its pros and cons. You can get the same information from the internet. I would only recommend this to someone who really wants a book in person.

This book is great for people who are looking to enter the world of blacksmithing. But I think maybe a brief history of the craft would have got it up to 5 stars for me. I have added a picture of my forge

Not a bad LITTLE book, but it is just that. The Information in it is helpful but it is short and limited. I had purchased the book 50 dollar knife shop for a bit more but it has everything this does and more. The pages were printed slanted and the text is large. All in all this was a good bit short read.

As someone who has never smithed before and wanting to pick it up as a hobby this was a perfect jumping off point. Ill be using this as a reference for all of my smithing needs present and future. I would highly recommend this to novice and advanced blacksmiths alike as it is a quick reference and easily accessible for any kind of information one could need.

I may have a skewed opinion of this book. I have done extensive research on blacksmithing and have read several other books and made many mistakes on my own. I gave it two stars for my position. However, IF you have never looked into blacksmithing, for the price, this isn't a terrible first book. I found it too late to be of much benefit for me, however.

Short and generic. Uninformative
