Good overview, one big ommision,

This review is from: Making It: Manufacturing Techniques for Product Design (Paperback)
The book provides a good overview of material processing, applications and finishing techniques.
One technique which is not included is welding of any description. Welding is one of the most widely used processes in industry and whilst I appreciate you could write a whole book on it I'm sure the author could have included a page on TIG, MIG, Friction stir etc. just for completeness.
A good book for initially selecting a process but more technical content would be required to make it a must for any engineer or designer.
