Keep in mind that the purpose of the book is to teach you how to build a bicycle frame without having to spend a fortune on a bona-fide tool set. In that respect I do feel that the author has achieved his goal; however, he does jump about a bit and as a former engineer myself, I can see that his engineering skills are not yet at their peak.
As regards to the silver-soldering involved, what should have been stressed is that cleanliness is next to Godliness.
Have no doubt that if you are committed to building your own frame then this book will be invaluable to you.
