Modern Masonry is a wonderful book for those who are interested in learning how to lay brick. The Modern Masonry book was actually given to me as a gift from my brick masonry teacher. I have had the chance to take brick masonry,my 11th grade year at high school. Modern Masonry is not only limited to professional brick masons, it is an easy to read guide for anyone. I wish that more women like myself would get involved in brick masonry because it is not only a trade for men.
