Most fireplace books concentrate on how they look, and are full of lovely glossy photographs.

This is quite different. It is a practical, readable book about how they work, and how to make them work. It is about fireplaces that don't smoke, and firebacks that don't crack, and gives hard facts about heat efficiency and what grates are best for which fuels. It revives, in easy language which any intelligent person can understand and enjoy, the science of good fireplace and chimney construction which died out with the working open fire in 1950.

It's a fascinating read, whether or not you are planning to build a fireplace and, if you're not, you may find yourself inspired to build one anyway after reading this book!

Great book, very useful when dealing with builders who tell you things will not be possible when they are in fact possible. Gives very detailed instructions on building a fireplace for your home.

Great book. I used it to inform myself prior to designing and building the fireplace in my home, which works perfectly!
