4.0 out of 5 stars Should be part of a chip carver's library 11 Jan 2012
By Noor S. Khalsa - Published on Amazon.com

Since I already had the beginner's classics (Barton, Gresham), I thought that this might be nothing new, but I have to admit that I found a lot of interesting material here. A lot of different styles are represented, and that's not the case with most chip carving tutorials.
