Readers of Harold Hall will recognize the title "Lathework: A Complete Course (Workshop Practice)"
I was hesitant at first, but since I love to collect books on machining, I ordered it. Even though I also ordered the above book from Amazon, they didn't know or bother to warn me that this IS THE SAME BOOK with a different title!
Great book, but now I have two versions. This version has a more expensive binding with glossy pages, and was easier to read, but if you have the other, don't buy this one. To sell both of these as though they are different works demonstrates questionable ethics IMHO.
Very late update to this review: Mr. Hall happens to be on one of my online machinist's forums and he told me that a different publisher now owns this series of books and has chosen to release *all* of them with new covers and titles. He didn't have any say in the matter. So, a word to the wise, this warning actually applies to the whole series.
