An excellent addition to publications outlining our craft and an essential aid for anyone starting out upon the road that we have all travelled. --Keith Holden FBSSG, President, Scientific Glassblowing Society of Australia and New Zealand
The author is to be congratulated for not only writing such a book but also for taking the bold and brave step to record his fifty years experience in the way he has. It is I believe a very courageous attempt of capturing our skills for permanent preservation. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to those who are currently training others. I also think all scientific glassblowers will benefit from reading the book by virtue that a lot of time we call ourselves self-taught. --British Society of Scientific Glassblowers (BSSG) Journal
The book details features of glassblowing that can be taught in a practical training course, specifically aimed at laboratory technicians or chemists who need to produce specialized glassware. The book combines many practical aspects of glassblowing otherwise not available in the literature. The book offers black-and-white photographs and diagrams, which makes for easier application in a practical set-up. Summing up: Recommended. --CHOICE

Another individual who will benefit from this book is the researcher who depends up a glassblower for their tools. The reason is that many researchers know their chemistry extremely well but do not know the dynamics of the material with which they work with. By following along in this book they will gain a better understanding of the glass upon which they depend upon so much.
With many photographs (some in color), the reader will easily be guided to the best visual description I've seen in a glassblowing manual. In fact, the only thing better than this book would be Mr. Le Pinnet standing by your side guiding you on in your work.
I heartily recommend this book.
