I bought this book, expecting it to tell me something more than the main Collins Wood Book, by Albert Jackson does. However, it has been lifted in its entirety from that book and adds nothing new at all. While the information is perfectly good, the book is a bit flimsy.

If you have an interest in wood I strongly advise you to buy Collins Complete Woodworker's Manual as it is terrific, beautifully made and put together with strong pages and colour pictures and contains everything you could ever wish to know about wood. It is a lot more expensive, but once you buy it you may never need another book on wood again.

a clear and concise description of all wood types 20 Sept. 2004
By transformerOne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
with clear color pictures and descriptive texts explaining the uses (workability, characteristics, common uses, etc) of a good majority of hard,soft and man-made woods this is a very comforting book.

Jackson & Day also explain the process of bringing timber to lumber and producing veneers. Althou this book is not exhaustive I feel this book is comprehensive yet instantly accessible to the layperson.
