The author clearly knows a lot about kilns but in my view, the books fails. The text is ranges from rambling and confusing to phrases that are patently don't make sense. He also fills the book with waffle so it is virtually impossible to see the wood for the trees. An example - he says it is important to know what you want to fire and how before you choose the shape and draft type of kiln (which I agree with) but in the following 200 pages, filled with many vaguely interesting but otherwise useless anecdotes, he, frustratingly, completely fails to elaborate on this important point. The book is riddled with typos and self contradiction. The subject of kiln building is moderately complicated but perfectly comprehensible- sadly, Olsen manages to overcomplicate the subject to the point that it is incomprehensible and the book is a frustrating example of an expert failing to impart his knowledge well.

I ordered this as I am building a kiln in France, it contains everything you need to know and is in bite size pieces.
I recommend this to anybody wanting to know about kilns and how to build them

Best book on the market on kiln data, building and design. I have read quite a few others others but none as though as this.
