    I'm not finished yet but overall I like it a ton and everyone going into knifemaking should read it. For specific metallurgy and phase transformation I would still prefer Verhoeven's work, but otoh that can be difficult to read if you are new to heat treatment.

    Well, I finished the book a few days ago. My reaction is that this book far surpasses anything else I have read on all aspects of heat treating. It could be that everything that I've previously read and learned gave me the base to absorb so much of what this book offers though. The book gave weight to a lot of my own thoughts about what is actually happening at the microstructure level.

    I think that I will re read the book again from page one.
