I have this one. The first machining book I bought. I dig it out to read occasionally just to get inspired. At first I was irritated reading about J. Martins business, but after time it has come to inspire me on things. I recommend it to anyone just starting out.

Science is fun.

We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.
