As an American (US) reader, be aware that this is a UK book with British authors so there is a fair amount of terminology differences that can be confusing, although not indecipherable, if you are an American. Brits and Americans do work with mostly the same tools and techniques but sometimes use different words. Fortunately the book uses both inches and metric so everyone will be happy. And the section on wood species contains woods from all over the world including North America.
