Insufficient detail
The editorial says this book, which assumes you have alredy read Audel Machine Shop Basics, will tell you all you need to know, but it falls far short of the mark.

The book attempts to cover all machine operations, but fails to provide sufficient diagrams and detailed descriptions for all the operations. I will have to buy additional books in order to fill the gaps left by this author.

I would still buy it if, for example, you already know how to set up a lathe to bore the inside of a hole and just need to know the appropriate cutting speeds and want a reminder of relevant machinist tips and tricks. It is also one of the few books on the subject available as an eBook for immediate download. If however, you can wait a day for the delivery of a paperback, choose something else.
