Thanks for the review, Leroy. Can I ask why you did not award it 5 stars?

Why fiddle with an E-book when same information already on line.

ebooks are convienent when you don’t have an internet connection. At 509 pgs. you really have to be dedicated to the subject though.

5 stars is for mind-blowing, life-changing things. But you can’t beat this publication for accuracy or for price!

Your link goes to a webpage that links to the same pdf Leroy5 posted in his review. Basically you posted the exact same thing he posted.

Why is it a must read? Did you read it? What things did you learn from it? Call me picky but I expect more in a review than just the title.

It is an encyclopedic, very reliable reference for most things “wood.” Upon reading it (yes, the whole, very long, thing), I had learned the answers to quite a few mysteries I have brutally bumped into over the past 35 years, and many I hadn’t. “Red ring rot” comes instantly to mind – and that was a very deep mystery indeed. Charts, tables, etc. read this book and see its value for yourself. And every copy comes with a ten-times-your-money-back guarantee. ;-)
