Please edit this book.

At around 30-50 seconds in there is a point that needs to be edited where the reader makes an error in his reading and curses before redoing the sentence.

More editing with audiobook

reader drops the "F" bomb when he makes a mistake and says
"Back in the back in the medieval times, charcoal and charcoal residue called coke, are primarily used to fuel the F*(k."
the sentence is then corrected saying Forge.
It did catch me off guard and made me laugh.

Informative and Simple

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's brief but interesting and easily digested. Comes with a fair amount projects that walk you step by step through creating some of your own tools. A very good jumping off point for anyone looking to begin blacksmithing.

Enjoyed the listen, minus the language edit

very informative, but dropping the "f" word without an edit is unacceptable. Listen for yourself

You said "fuck"

I think 8 minutes in, around the beginning anyway, not sure if you can fix it but I figured I'd let you know.
The book was good otherwise.

Content is basic, but good.

The content is very high level blacksmithing information. The plans/instructions for tools in the end would be better in print than audio format. I didn't particularly care for the narrator. Often his diction and the inflection in his voice would throw me off as he would end a declarative statement as if it were a question or he wasn't sure.

Overall ok, but wish it had more than an hour of content to be worth a credit.

Great read for begginers

Any additional comments?

Leading me to believe that he has been in the trade long enough to know how to teach it. I am not a beginner but I felt like I walked away from reading this with more knowledge than I began.

Very good guide

Where does Blacksmithing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is in the first position i loved it..

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blacksmithing?

A good book for as far as it goes. It touches on all the basics a beginner needs to know, but in some cases it doesn't do much more than touch.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened it by 2 sittings think so..

Any additional comments?

This book will give you a good rough outline, but you'll need to find something, or better yet someone else to fill in the gaps. This is a very good short book of the basics. There is a lot of steps that everyone needs.

Great beginners guide!

Any additional comments?

I've learn a lot from this book which I think it made me more broad minded and know some forges which I can use. This book is definitely a guide for newbie. Nice book.
