This is a very good guide and aid in laying a hardwood floor. However, I was hoping to see some assistance in the recommendations for equipment and how to use the finishing nailers. The minimum requirements for a compressor would have been a real bonus. The basic guide for laying a floor is here and anyone who wants to lay a hardwood floor would do well to read this first. Well worth the money.Added later: I have laid two hardwood floors since purchasing this book. I bought a compressor, Dewalt (200 psi an unbelievable compressor) and two floor nailers: one that uses a shoe with a heavy hammer and an Hatachi 15 gauge finishing nailer. You will need both types. Spend your money to get a good compressor; a decent nailer will work with a good compressor but a great nailer will not work with a cheap one.Wow, It was a dream and my floor looks great. My wife was mad when I bought the tools but is now extremely happy. If I can do it (I am a 67 years old retired teacher) you can do it.

This ebook might be useful for someone who has no construction/DIY experience and is looking for an introduction to laying hardwood flooring. However, anyone who has done at least preliminary research on laying hardwood flooring the book will be of little use. It is also exclusive to nailing hardwood and does not discuss even basic installation steps for glue down or floating floors, nor does it cover design or transitioning between wood directions.I saw the book was only $0.99 and figured, well, it's only $0.99, it can't hurt to take a look at, but 30 minutes after buying it I wish I had my buck back. Avoid unless you want a very rudimentary explanation of how to nail down hardwood floors.
