Tim McCreight's Book Practical Joining does cover the same material
but it is in no way a rehash. Mr. McCreight has elaborated on the
subject adding so much more usable theory and contemporary
applications for joining metals.
Many of the questions on torches and soldering being asked on this
forum are addressed in the Hot Connections section of the book.
The hidden spiral binding allows the book to lay flat when using it
at the bench.
It's a great book, look for my official review in our Nov. 2007
