Best DIYer welding reference book out there. You can not beat the price for the quality content of this fine publication. The color pictures in the book, coupled with the high quality paper the book is printed on is superb!
The author's attention to detail in this book is akin to having a one on one lecturer at your fingertips, teaching you all about welding. The book covers ALL aspects of modern electric (manual) and gas welding types in detail. The book makes a great welding guide to reference in the future for any hobbiest's needs.
The book is both suited for not only a beginner welder, but a more experienced welder too! I highly recommend this book above any other welding book, such as "Welding for ...". (You get the picture).
