Metallurgy and metallurgical engineering have defined man, the toolmaker, from the earliest days of civilization. This book focuses on the science of metallurgy for the craftsman, trades, beginning engineer, engineer-in-training, hobbyist, blacksmith, and technician. It is written as much to inspire as to educate. Written for the non-engineer, it takes the reader into science of metallurgy to form a foundation in ferrous and non-ferrous metals. It teaches from the shop floor versus the academic classroom, yet it does not overlook the fundamental scientific principles. It is a college level text that is full of practical applications, and it assumes not previous knowledge.
