Summary
by Steve folkers, cooper at the Ozark Folk Center
"Kilby was a fourth generation brewery cooper, about 40 miles north of London, who took up demonstrating as the trade collapsed, and then ended up writing the compendium of the art. This is a how-the-professionals-do-it book; not DYI projects, but inspiring as all get out. The two parts cover the training and work of the craftsman (including the timber used and the rise of machine coopering), and a glorious history of coopering world wide, from pre-roman through medieval to modern times."

Summary
by Steve Folkers
"Thirty years after writing his magnum opus on coopering, Kilby did this much smaller, cheaper, more popularized and more colorfully illustrated book. Although it covers the same ground (the trade and it's history) and much more swiftly (63 pages), it is all new material, way beyond a mere update, and I find it worth while to have both books."
