Easy but comprehensive

Excellent for reference as well as for the beginner. Provides specific, in depth information while still practical. Well illustrated. Concise. However, not thorough enough for the advanced weldor interested in complete discussion of metallurgy and other principles.
A Little Bit Technical

Being a weldor as a hobby, I found this book to be more in depth than I initially anticipated. It was great to find out how my machine works and learn what has caused some of my past failures. I think this book is great for metalurgical references for my applications. Being a hobbiest I didn't really need to know about the industrial aspects or how to read specs. But I guess even unused information isn't bad to have. Its hard to acquire this knowledge on the side.
GTAW Book Excellent

I was skeptical about buying this book, due to the less than perfect reviews, but I did anyways because there is not many books out there exclusively on TIG welding. It is exactly what I was looking for. Great Technical info on TIG methodology, Lots of pictures which I prefer to all text technical books, and a ton of info on different TIG machines out there, and even knowleadge of robotic TiG machines used in industry. Don't let the bad reviews fool you this was exactly what I was looking for; a resource for my technical DIY TIGing aspirations. Might not be for a beginner, but than again what kind of beginner welder is going to be buying a entire book on GTAW.
