A fantastic beginners book.

This book is what you should listen if you want to start blacksmithing. The author did a very good job of describing the processes and procedures for starting up blacksmithing. I've learn a lot from this book which I think it made me more broad minded and know some forges which I can use. This book is definitely a guide for newbie. Nice book.

It was a good book for starting

It was a good book for starting out, I just wish it had some included example pictures. I'm very much a visual learner and this would have helped a lot. I used this book for my class to discuss Blacksmithing. This book is spectacular helpful for me indeed!

More editing with audiobook

reader drops the "F" bomb when he makes a mistake and says
"Back in the back in the medieval times, charcoal and charcoal residue called coke, are primarily used to fuel the F*(k."
the sentence is then corrected saying Forge.
It did catch me off guard and made me laugh.

Informative and Simple

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's brief but interesting and easily digested. Comes with a fair amount projects that walk you step by step through creating some of your own tools. A very good jumping off point for anyone looking to begin blacksmithing.
