English

In general, the book is a good guide for the beginning inlay artist though I feel a little more detail, especially in finishing, would have been nice.
What really bothered me, however, was the poor grammar. Misspelled words, bad punctuation, and awkward phrasing were tedious to get through. A basic editor or even a proofreader might have required upping the price a little, but not enough to omit them.

great for making DYO tools for inlaying

Really complete book, with plenty of templates to build your own tools, and gadgets for inlay work. I only missed some color pics, but it is a really good book. I learnt a lot with it.
