This book is a great book. It is almost like a dictionary for handtools. The pictures are very detailed. You can look up almost any handtools and figure information out from how to use it to how to care for the tool. If you are just getting into hand tools I recommend getting a reference book. This is a great choice. If the video below will not play click here. for the video book review.

thanks for the rewiew Charles you are right about its a good thing to get books like this
both if you are starting on the journey and later … always good to have some referencebooks
to get you over … how was is … what is this tool … etc.
the book seems to be a little text heavy for some :-)
despite the wonderfull drawings
other handtool books I can recomend is Aldren A. Watson´s ” handtools their ways and workings
with alot of drawings for those that is more visualy minded
and a newer with pictures by Andy Ray ”choosing and using handtools
