    Not a bad book, but it lacks direction

    This book needs to develop more to compete with some of the more focused texts. There is some good information present but there is too much irrelevant clutter. There is no real need to discuss CNC profile grinding, generic conversational programming. The data presented is quite accurate and the illustrations are good, but there is simply too much discussion of setup sheets, theoretical concepts and FAPT programming and not enough of the basics.
