    A good book if you already know some about stained glass.

    This is a good book, if you already know and make stained glass, but are needing some hints and tips. I don't think, if you have no clue and are wanting to plunge in, that this book tells you everything you should know.

    Very good book. Really not for beginners.

    I learned about stained glass a few years ago. Picked it back up recently and this book definitely brushed me up on stuff I had forgotten. If you're brand new and never taken a class start with on line videos to see if you really want to invest the time, space and money. Then do yourself a favor and take a class. If money is a problem try and find a local folksy glass shop (not a high end snooty one) and see if they will talk to you about questions you have. MOST long time artists love to talk about their work and are a wealth in assistance! I'm glad I got this book but it's for someone a little familiar with stained glass!
