5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great drywall book that covers all angles of the drywall ... 8 Feb. 2015
By Ron - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a great drywall book that covers all angles of the drywall project. Lot's of illustrations to show / explain what you need to know. The 1 star rating is totally uncalled for. Sorry but they missed the point of the book completely! Someone must have told him drywall was made of a mineral but did learn this on his own? Had to get this info from somewhere. John, great job at including so much info in a great teaching format!

5.0 out of 5 stars comprehensive...yes 28 Jun. 2014
By John D. Wagner - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am the author of this book. The 1-star review on Amazon is way off base. This book is a very comprehensive guide, very well illustrated and photographed, and it took a year of work to create, with an exacting level of research and fact checking. I am formally the editor of The Journal of Light Construction, (JLC) a magazine with an excellent reputation for editorial excellence. This book was produced in the JLC tradition and you will not be disappointed by its coverage of the topic, despite what some unbalanced reviewer offhandedly said about my work. -- John D Wagner

1.0 out of 5 stars comrehensive??? 19 Jan. 2011
By Jamal Floate-Renaissance - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I don't know who the target audience is here, but I found the ultimate guide to drywall to be an ultimate waste of reading time. I spent an hour reviewing information I not only all ready knew, but stuff I learned as a kid. This book is jamb packed with really informative facts like "hey did you know that sheet-rock is made from a kind of stone!?" Spend ten to 15 minutes in any hardware store and you can not only get a better description of the common drywall tools, but you'll get to hold em too.
