Both The Victorinox Swiss Army Knife Whittling Book and
The Little Book of Whittling are now available in special hardback editions.
I think the best way to get reviews of my books is to simply search the titles. A lot of reviews will show up. For instance, try the reviews on Amazon.

For many, many years my go-to knife has been one or another model of the Victorinox Swiss Army knives. I'm estimating that one of my Swiss Army "Tinkers" has been involved in more than $160,000.00 worth of carvings, and is still going strong! I really consider it a privilege to have been able to write a book for, and with, the Victorinox company, a company I greatly respect, both for its people and its products.
All of the titles in English are fairly widely distributed, and if you search any of the titles, you'll find the best place to get it. Also, there are lots of reviews on various sites.

THE LITTLE BOOK OF WHITTLING
For many years in the history of woodcarving, with hundreds of titles published, it seems that no one had ever dedicated any significant time to what could be done with a simple pocketknife and twigs and branches. Until quite recently, when a couple of somewhat similar books came out in Europe, I suspect that the various books I had written (through Sterling Publishers, some self-publishing, and, most importantly, Fox Chapel Publishing) were the main sources of information on this type of carving.
The last five books have been published by Fox Chapel Publishing, happily located just a fifteen minute drive from my house right here in Lancaster County. Besides the editions in English, several have made it into foreign languages: 4 in German, 2 in Russian, 2 in Chinese, 1 in Dutch, 1 in French, 1 in Spanish. . . and most recently 1 in Estonian. (I understand that a third title is going into Chinese.)
