Well, once again I have to get to the nitty gritty and give this book a 1 star for color pics. The information with regard to angle calculations and charts-tables and derived numbers are based on a True angle protractor that you have to purchase either as a kit or separately. What this means is that if you don’t have the tool he’s trying to sell you, you will be wondering why is that angle in picture or description 270. How did he get that when it looks more like closer to 90 or so?
I should have paid attention to the one true negative review on Amazon (Buyer beware-this book is part of a system!)
The pictures are nice but the information is useless if you’re new to crown molding.
Save yourself the cash and download better and clear no BS information from u-tube and web.

I have this book and I think it is excellent.When I decided to do my crown molding about 5 years ago this book came highly recommended by a friend who had just finished his house.My crown came out great and I have since helped 3 friends do their whole house.I have found the book invaluable.You do not need to use his protractor.Any protractor will do.(Bosch sells a digital one).

Yes, there are a lot of positive reviews of this book on Amazon but with exception of one review, they fail to mention that all the charts and angle tables are based on 360 degree True angle tool.
On the other hand if you are using a normal digital protractor which reads up to 180 degree then the book becomes confusing and all the tables become useless or require you to do the math which defeats the purpose of quick calculations and require test cuts.
So, it all comes down to what the expectations are from a book.
Yes there is a lot of info in the book but nothing that can’t be downloaded from the web or watched on u-tube.
