    I've just bought one too, also available on amazon uk, which was a shock. He really looks the spitting image of Ray Mears on the cover there.

    Did you find much useful information in the book from a maker's perspective?

    From a maker perspective, I wouldnt say that there was much of anything revealed that is not pretty much common knowlege. However for less than 20 bucks, it was enjoyable to read, had tons of pics and whenever reading or watching someone who is a master of thier craft, you will always pick some stuff up.

    It's like my ol' grandpappy used to say; "The less one makes declarative statements, the less apt he is to look a fool in retrospect"
