Having read the scathing reviews, it is true, you just light a fire under a metal bath tub. However it introduces the concept of using Cob, a mixture of clay, sand & straw to build a fire box & flue to prevent you getting smoked out of your tub. The flue/firebox design is something unique in this style tub & has the advantage of forming a rocket type stove meaning a more efficient use of wood fuel. More time spent in your tub!
I should point out though that the Cob aspect is only a very basic introduction. You could possibly use cement & rocks, but it would realy spoil the concept, not to mention it's environmental aspect.

There are a lot of ideas in this book to help you enjoy & get the most out of your red neck hot tub. Most of which I haven't seen in any of the youtube video's or the plethora of web sites that also show you how to build something similar.The book makes you question where, how, why, what with siting your tub, again not something I've seen discussed before. It sparks the imagination so you can create something unique for yourself. No two tubs will be the same!

This is a book is well worth getting if you can find a copy, but no for the prices here on Amazon Market place!

HASH(0x8f4a0ce4) out of 5 stars Gift for the Spirit, the body and wallet! 25 Nov. 2006
By Elizabeth Hamel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ok I don't know who wrote the scathing review above but don't be discouraged by it. Becky Bee is a revolutionary builder and visionary and this book is a true gift to the world. My friends (only 3 of us) had our tub up and running the same day. But I could have done it myself in a few days. Over the next few weekends I put the finishing touches and it looks great! I endeavored to keep the whole project under $200 which we did and could have done for under $100. I have found soaking in a hot tub, that I built to be extremely rewarding. Its hard work but I'm not an especially fit person, so if I can do it anyone can, just remind yourself to go slow and enjoy the process - its not a race. All of my friends that looked at this book thought it was a great book and became interested in building a tub at their house. Buy this book (by the way I've never met the author) but I have her other book and having built my own cob (a earth/straw/sand mix) tub using only this book I think I can speak with some authority. I would say that I added paper pulp to my mix with great success.

HASH(0x9efa1768) out of 5 stars You can Make the Best Hot Tub Ever 25 Jun. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
What a GREAT little book !!! My friends and I were able to build and use a hot tub in one week-end. The book was full of helpful hints and tips that made the process painless. The materials suggested were inexpensive and easily found. We had as much fun making it as we did having a luxurious soak in the evening moonlight. The book inspired us and enabled us to create an inexpensive way to have our own hot tub. We built our tub small so we could change the water frequently and use no chemicals. Since it took suprisingly little fuel to heat the water it proved to be very inexpensive. I highly recommend this book. We also found the Cob Builders Handbook full of invaluable tips about building anything with Cob. I can't wait to build something else using Cob.

HASH(0x8f3a2ae0) out of 5 stars Mud around an old bathtub? 10 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was VERY disappointed with this book. I should have heeded the other 'one star' review I'd read, but thought that perhaps it was an exaggeration: but it was not! I had hoped to receive a book about building a quality hot tub, perhaps from wood or some other quality material, but this book really is about taking an old bathtub, sticking it on top of some rocks, and then routing heat from a fire underneath it. I was shocked and VERY disappointed. If you want to make use of an old bathtub, perhaps this is the book for you. If you want something of quality, keep looking...
