Great Resource, Fun To Read

I knew this book would be good when I saw it referenced in OTHER books!

I ordered it and proceeded to read it in two nights. It was so enjoyable, and the reading is easy.

It is full of so many tips and insights that even a seasoned axe person will benefit. And, it is so clear and well explained that novices will understand it all and put it to good use immediately.

Usually people ask, “Would you buy it again?” In this case, YES, I READ it again. There are so many tidbits that they can’t all be digested in one sitting.

Don’t hesitate. Order this book. And, when it arrives, make a date with your most comfortable chair, or with a secluded stump in your favorite forest, and drink it all in.
