This is a must for anyone starting out and should also be on everyones shelf for reference, unless you can remember everything!
Covers every aspect of the topic in an easy to understand style, that is typical of this great master.
Having been involved with engineering for 40 years I found that after reading the chapter on Tempering there was a method so easy I can't understad why it's not common practice. Has worked for me with 100% success. In fact there's something to learn in every chapter.
Recommended without condition.
I had a basic understanding heat treatments before this book but did not understand why the steel changed when you heated and cooled it. The book starts with a nice history of working iron into steel and the different types of steel. It follows with lots of scientific detail as to what is happening in the metal when it is treated. For people with no background in science this might be a little hard going. However, the science is balanced with lots of practical details of how to do all of the different heat treatment of steel and when not to attempt this. The book is clearly written with good digrams and images.
One thing though is that the book gets quite scientific in parts, this is not a criticism, although personally speaking i did not need it to get so in-depth. But i have learnt alittle more about metals and thier treatments.
So i would recommend it to anyone interested and beginning to work with metals. This will cover the basics of heat treatments very well and will also give some scientific background, to back up practical knowledge.
Very approachable, linking up the visuals of what is occurring, right through to the changes at the atomic level of the different metals.
Diagrams, photographs (including colour) and sketches are well placed to aid a clear understanding.
