This book gives you all the background science to welding, from steel-making and metallurgy to heat flow and electromagnetic theory, but it also covers some more practical aspects such as testing and inspection of welds. For information on the actual welding processes, though, you'll need volume 2! This book can be heavy going, but you'll not feel short changed if you really want to know about welding from the very basics.

I have an earlier edition of this book (which covers volumes 1 and 2) which was passed down from my uncle, and after 12 years of welding it is the only book I still use for reference; I have many other welding books sat collecting dust.
As described in previous reviews this book is in part more of a scientific nature and certainly not for beginners. However the text and associated photos and diagrams detailing the practice of welding are very useful and informative to the more advanced welder; including information on all common (gas, MIG, TIG) and more industrial/exotic methods and materials.
Also included are filler wire and preparation charts and advice on destructive and non destructive testing and exam questions.
This book was first published in 1941! so I can only assume the current edition is better. If you are a fairly advanced welder (not a beginner) and would be more interested in case studies and personal experiences of aircraft and motorsport welding in particular I would look at 'Performance Welding' from Motorbooks Workshop: if you require a more in-depth insight into all aspects this is your book.
