very handy

This has to be one of the most comprehensive books on wood joinery. As a novice woodworker, the information found in this audio-book is invaluable. Even for the more experienced, I feel that there's plenty to learn here as well. As much info as you can find online about joinery, it's really nice to have a book that covers it all

simple guide

A great audio-book for new and old woodworkers. Very good , explaination of each joint, and the proper name for each joint.. I keep it in the shop bookcase, and refer to it frequently when the need to do a joint that is not commonly used, although the audio-book covers just about every joint very well.

interesting book

All you'll ever need to know about the art and the science of wood joinery thoroughly detailing purposes and applications, strengths and weaknesses, with great illustrations. Includes brief yet concise descriptions, citing both power and hand tool techniques, and leaves the choices to the woodworker.

great book for beginners

It is beautifully done. The pictures are beautiful, covers a lot of topics. I think there is enough for everyone but it is pretty basics, it is not a project book. For a beginner this would be marvelous; for an experience woodworker this is very nice to look at but you might not gain a bit of knowledge. It will take a while to take a closer look. But I do enjoy looking at all the illustrations and pictures.
