This is my first router book, and I don't expect to need another one anytime soon. For comparison, I thought Tolpin's Table Saw Magic was good, and it's still essential, but Hylton's router book shows what a difference it makes when author, editor, and layout people pay attention to detail. Clear, concise writing, beautiful photos, consistent layout with handy cross references, safety tips, accurate plans and material/cut lists, this book has it all. On top of that, Hylton offers thoughtful analyses of numerous, sometimes bewildering choices of routers, accessories, and techniques. I'll be occupied for months or years building jigs and fixtures from this book, and I haven't seen a wasted large-format page yet out of 376. A masterpiece, all for less than the price of one good bit. I don't see how anyone who owns a router can afford not to have it.
