Substance: Invaluable advice on carpentry and tools. Application of maxims to other areas of life.
Style: Anecdotal memoir. ( )

Norm Abrams is a pro in the shop, but he's no bard. The language is clunky and the information doesn't flow. But, if you can look beyond all that, there's lots of good information in here. ( )

You will learn more about Norm Abram and life from this book than you will about carpentry. While talking about basic principles of carpentry, Abram explores the experiences that shaped his life and his philosophy. It is engaging and personal. I have it filed in my philosophy section, rather than in carpentry. It is a wonderful book. ( )

Norm, from This Old House, gives lots of sage advice on building homes and other aspects of carpentry. I found the book very useful. ( )
