The text and photos in this book are excellent and enable easy assimilation of the material. From the point of view of EU readers it's main downside is its rather limited focus on plunge routers which tend to dominate the market here. I couldn't help forming the impression that it was an 'American technique' book. I have reservations about the section on joint making which is pretty limited if you are already familiar with basic joinery techniques. For a first time router purchaser this is a reasonable book, but the professional tradesman will probably need to look elsewhere.
