Format: Paperback
I forgot to read the reviews and wish I had. This book is great....if you live in the USA. It has little relevance to UK residents or UK trees.

The species heat value chart for trees for example, does list some trees that grow in the UK but even this information is of little use as, say a larch tree grown in the USA will have a different density to one grown here. THat's why most of our timber is unsuitable for cabinet making.

Unless you are thinking of installing a stove yourself give this one a miss.

Although this book was first printed in 1992, the information is still useful. I have been burning wood for more than ten years and I still picked up some tips. The section on troubleshooting is good for beginners and storage ideas were sound also.

Seems to work well, but have only just started using it. Will know for sure when I've used over a longer period on the wood I use for a wood burning stove.
