Format: Paperback
I used this book over 15 years ago to teach myself fibrous plastering techniques, as the colleges at the time were not teaching this old and basically forgotten skill... new methods of casting had brought "speed" into plastering...
As all the "Old Boys" were heading for the building site in the sky and taking there skills with them... I saw a need to learn these "New - Old" skills as more and more people were asking me to renovate old cornice work... the gap in the marketplace for proffessional cornice plasterers was massive and through using all the information gleend from this book... I became highly skilled in all plaster restoration projects and was asked by a local college to pass on a few techniques to apprentices... this book is fantastic and used properly will enhance a novices skills along with a follisilsed plasterer like my self 10 out of 10

Format: Paperback
This is a book for advanced plasterers which spends an inproportunate space on rare and unlikely jobs. If you want to know the bare essentials and know them well buy another book. Not much book for the money in my opinion.

Format: Paperback
I wholeheartedly agree with the reviewer who says that the book is NOT suitable for novices. Well, not unless the unspecified novice is the bravest of the brave. One must keep in mind that the book was published nearly 20 years ago. Procedures change somewhat, but mostly so do such things as blends and types of plaster and associated products. I would suggest that a prospective purchaser asks himself - herself - why the book is needed. If someone just wants to learn a few skills in order to do a few home plastering jobs then this book would be of no use at all; however, if one intends to make plastering one's trade then this book, which, according to the back cover is suitable for advanced level C & G (City & Guilds) plastering courses, will be a constant source of inspiration and guidance: it comprehensively covers all aspects of plastering. The glossary of technical terms leaves a lot to be desired. So, to sum up: A great book for the professional but look elsewhere if you seek basic instructions on how to plaster.

I have owned this book since it was the set text for my C&G plastering course. It was not not useful then and it has never been useful since. Stagg and Pegg is much more helpful on advanced plastering techniques
