Purchased this used in acceptable condition and the book arrived in almost new condition. Information is basic enough to gather a sense on how to do various projects with various masonry products. For a beginner it will point you in the right direction. All in all this is a good book to start off with in my opinion. Buy a used one and I don't thing you will go wrong for the price. Nothing ventured, nothing gained...

Love the masonry guide... Provides detailed instructions for many projects around the house! Can't wait until Spring to get started!!!

I was interested in repairing a damaged drive, but this book was all about custom sidewalks a decorative designing. Did not show me information that I was researching.

i am a do it yourselfer and sometimes you need books to refer to to get the information to help finish a job, and these books are great books for that, they have detailed pictures and easy to follow instructions.

Great step by step advice and diagrams for creative home masonry and as well as critical repair.
