    I have nothing to compare this book to and I have never tried to work with glass but I felt like the text and pictures explained it very well and that if I were to study this book and follow Ms. Adams instructions I might be successful working in glass. I do not wear jewelry or collect knickknacks so this was just an idle read. The hobby requires more equipment than I thought. Besides a torch and assortment of glass a kiln, some hand tools and a fan powered fume hood are necessary for safety.

    A guided tour of my latest (theoretical) passion. Adams makes it look, if not easy, then certainly attainable.
