really liked it

So much good advice, so many good ideas, and so many gorgeous pictures. If you need something to give you the confidence to do experimental firings, this book is just the ticket. Also as a personal note, when doing pit fires, layer your combustibles in it in such a way that the fire can make its way through the whole pit, make sure there is enough air for the reaction, dont pack it too tight, and thread newspaper down through it. Also, dont be stingy on the copper carbonate. If you do those two things then you will have beautiful results!!
