This book is all fluff and no substance. It tells you absolutely NOTHING about actual welding technique, and does nothing but convince the readers that they can't do anything of substance without top dollar equipment. Most of the book uses aircraft frames as exemplars. Don't get sucked in by the popularity of the TV show! This book is NOT worth purchasing.
