Bought in conjunction with my first router. Very glossy, excellent illustrations and as far as I can tell at the moment (not yet having read it all) it looks to be quite informative. However, it is American so some of the descriptions are not the same as the UK (splines instead of biscuits for example). In addition, a list of bits incorporated in the book are priced in dollars (and are probably out of date pricewise anyway). Nevertheless it is a quality book but only gets four stars 'cos it's American.
If, like me, you are an amateur with just a rudimentary knowledge of routers and want to develop your skills, you would do well to study this book from cover to cover. I was amazed to find how useful and versatile a router can be. Well written and well illustrated, it represents good value for money and I would recommend it to anyone with a serious interest in woodworking.
I've just bought a router and wanted to learn more about how to use it, this book is full of practical knowhow and advise. I would recommend it to anyone who needs to know more about woodworking routers.
An excellent and knowledgly written book with ample pictures and sketches. Yes, the emphasis is on American tradesmen using generally American products but the ideas and tips and warnings translate to any user. Well worth the money
