This is a very useful beginner's guide to the main types of welding. With just enough basic technical detail to explain what is involved, the emphasis is very much on practical advice to get you started - which it does very successfully. Unfortunately, it has been let down by some poor proof-reading and page-formatting issues. Illustrations, labels and text seem to have become separated in several places. In most cases it is fairly easy to reconnect the "orphaned" items, but things seem to have gone especially haywire in Chapter 14 (Steel Construction) - where headings, photos, labels and text seem to have had a will of their own! Even so, a good book.
