Recommended by Bill

Bill is the Buyer for Boffins, so blame him when you don’t find the book you want. He reads widely, particularly non-fiction, and reviews books monthly on Wednesdays with Gareth Parker on radio station 6PR.

For some people, mention “chocolate” or “gin” and they’ll be immediately interested. For others, mention the word “tools” and they’ll want to go straight to the shed. This wonderful  book parades every hand tool you’ll ever need, how to choose it, how to use it, and how to look after it. Whether it’s a hammer or a spirit level, a paint brush or a roller ,  a spade or an axe, even a scythe or a sickle – it’s in here with about 200 other tools. Every craftsman or handyman will love this book.
