Best Masonry Book I've Found to Date

Brick masonry is the one project I have not tackled over the years due to the inability for me to find a good reference book. I scoured my local library for reference material, only to be disappointed by the Black and Decker series books (just not enough meat in the material) and some of the other books didn't have enough diagrams to suit my taste. Thankfully, I found this copy of Mr Kreh's book and have been pleasantly surprised with my findings. Mr Kreh is a master bricklayer with several decades of experience. He shares information and lesson's learned to aid the reader into making informed decisions. I also like his recommending good, quality tools over cheap tools (value over cost) even if the reader intends on only completing one project. The writing is very descriptive and well thought out. There are plenty of pictures to convey what the author is trying to explain as well as give the reader ideas for present and future projects. This book is a definite "must have" for anyone considering a masonry related project.

more bs

This book came in a timely fashion, was in good shape, and was what it was promised to be. I am happy with this purchase.

Interesting tips

This book is straight forward and you will learn tips from the pros. I had very little experience when reading this book; afterwards I knew tricks that my friend the brick layer did not know. I then went on to doing my own brick work around the home.

An amateur's opinion

My title should be self-explanatory. I am a rank amateur on this subject. I found this book extremely informative and would recommend it for amateurs. The information is both clear and well presented. A very good read.

Excellent introduction to brick masonry

This is a valuable guide for novice brick masons. The author is an expert who takes you through the basics of materials, tools, layout, and a good selection of projects for around the house. This is a fairly unique book and fills a void in the how to do section.
