This is a book to be used on the dining room table or desk with a notebook and a cup of coffee or some other .

A lot of updated, much older books tend to be mostly the old black & white photos with some updated paragraphs or perhaps a new chapter. This book looks to be entirely re-written using relatively current photographs, current topics and the latest knowledge.

I hate doing negative reviews, and thankfully I don't have to do one here......But, I need to start from a baseline understanding of what this book really is. So, here is what you need to know first. This book is OLD. Not old as in ancient, but old with respect to technology. It started its life back in 1967 and this edition is from 2004. That means it is over nine years old right now (probably older than that considering how long it takes to get a book to press...). There is a new updated version, 2012 edition, currently available from Amazon. See here..Modern Welding. If you are looking for current information on today's technology, you should probably look at the newest edition. Another thing that needs to be noted is that this book is a TEXTBOOK!!!! Originally a high school text probably (although I can't be certain about that..). I say this because inside the front cover is the familiar line drawing denoting ownership by a school district of some sort with spaces below for names to be entered when the book is issued to a student. Colleges don't do this...you purchase college texts, you don't borrow them from the "district".

In any event, here are the "nuts and bolts". If you remember your old textbooks, that is what this one is like. It is a large book with over 750 pages of relatively small print. It is divided into 9 "Parts", 34 "Chapters", and multiple 'sub-chapters'. There are chapter reviews and end of chapter tests as well. And this brings me to one of my major complaints....If you are reading this to learn something and NOT using it as a textbook in an organized class, then all of the time spent on the review pages and "tests" will be in vain. There are NO answers to the questions...normal for a high school text. I would guess that the correct responses are annotated in the "Instructors Edition" which of course you will not have access to.

Having said that, this book still has a lot to offer. It is well written and very thorough. It covers almost everything you would want to know about welding in general terms (as of 2003 or earlier!!..). I found it very well edited and well documented. It has a VERY nice glossary as well as a useful index. There are a lot of images both black/white and color...some are photographs and others are line art and drawings...all are quite good and very useful. In general, this is everything you would want a text to be. That is what it IS!! What it IS NOT, is good prose narrative. Nor is it particularly easy to read because of the font. This is not a book you will want to sit down with and just read. This is a book to be used on the dining room table or desk with a notebook and a cup of coffee or some other delightful elixir while reviewing or looking things up. In other words, STUDYING!!

I am giving this book only three stars because it has been superseded by a new edition. If you are purchasing based on perceived value, this book may be four or five stars...afterall, it is MUCH less expensive than the newer edition. OTOH, if you want or need the latest information, then the newest edition might be your best bet.

If you know some basic welding and want a book to expand your knowledge, or a reference book for an experienced welder, this is it. I'm not saying you can't learn to weld starting from this book--you could. What a beginner might want, that is not here, are lots of pictures of good welds vs. bad welds. But if you know enough to know you need to improve, or if you are an experienced welder, this book will help you in several ways. It goes into great detail on selecting equipment (from basic to specialized), setting it up and operating it.

* It covers almost ANY kind of welding you would ever run across, including but certainly not limited to: gas welds, cutting and brazing; stick, TIG, and MIG; plasma; spot welding; machine and automated welding, etc.

* Comprehensive list of charts for setting up and using every kind of equipment and for various base metals, thicknesses, fillers metals, etc.

* "How to" techniques for proper manipulation of every kind of equipment presented.

* The best feature is detailed theory on WHY things happen in each technique being taught. This allows you to think for yourself when needed, rather than monkey-see-monkey-do presentation. You will make informed decisions on what to use and how to use it for the best result in most any situation.

The presentations are not over-your-head complicated, yet they include most anything an advancing or skilled welder would want to know. I was impressed with the balance.

The book is comprehensive, well organized, and easy to understand. As a hands-on property manager often called upon to weld throughout my life, this book gives me complete confidence in what I am doing. I use it to teach my guys who have never welded, and they can refer to it before each job. I doubt I will ever buy another welding book.

Excellent!

Bought it as an update to a 1970s 'Modern Welding' edition. A lot of updated, much older books tend to be mostly the old black & white photos with some updated paragraphs or perhaps a new chapter.

This book looks to be entirely re-written using relatively current photographs, current topics and the latest knowledge. I'm well pleased.

The Modern Welding Manual is packed full of informationm for the novice and experienced welder alike. The information is well presented and easily understood. The graphics and pictures really help to describe how welding functions are performed.
