Review by CHOICE
CHOICE is a publication of the Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association   (November 2003, Vol 41, No 03)

"Glassblowing is an art, a craft, an avocation... Carberry has been teaching and writing for 30 years on the subject of his lifetime hobby. The book is an excellent compendium of instructions on both the art and craft of glassblowing using borosilicate glass. ...a book like this is valuable in starting one's studies or organizing a glassblowing course. ...Carberry's book is recommended to those beginning in this area or to those contemplating teaching this topic. Since most skilled professional are near retirement, talented younger persons might find glasswork an interesting career option. Summing Up: Essential. General readers; upper-division undergraduates through professionals; two-year technical program students.

Robert Ponton
Professional Glassblower and Past President of the American Scientific Glassblowers Society

"Dr. Carberry presents both novelty and scientific glassblowing in an easy to read text. These two distinctly different genres of glassblowing coexist, each to the other’s benefit. At least a third bigger and loaded with color photographs this new edition will greatly aid the beginning student in finding the joy that working hot glass can bring."
"Each operation in the book is well defined in easy to understand plain language accompanied by numerous high quality photographs."
"While this book is intended to be used with the aid of an instructor a student looking to pick up basic glassworking techniques on his or her own could just as easily use it. The step-by-step "cookbook" approach makes learning these basic techniques a reasonable expectation."
"This Third Edition is a must for an individual attempting to learn on his or her own. Instructors of glassblowing classes should consider adding this to the class materials used. The combination of novelty and scientific glassblowing will help to keep beginners enthusiastic and focused.
 

Dr. John Cragel
Professor of Chemistry, Dept. Chair and Glassblower (Hiram College)

"The color edition you sent me is absolutely beautiful. The text is stunning, and the color photos are absolutely the best. I will continue adopting your text as long as I teach my glassblowing course."
 

Jerome Fischer
Retired High School Chemistry Teacher (Nicolet H.S.) Milwaukee, WI

"Your photo work with Glassblowing is remarkable. Good glass photography is extremely difficult because of reflections in the glass and the wide color range from ultra-blue to infrared. Yet you have completely mastered it in this book. Great work!" "Your photo work with Glassblowing is remarkable.
