The Log Book
What is the Log Book?
In August 2012 I self-published a book on how to get the best from a wood-burning stove. I deliberately kept it friendly and did my best to explain pretty much everything I know about log-burners. It sold reasonably well and I began a discussion with a few publishers on how I could take the next step. While I had a good product, I didn’t have the time and channels available to me to be able to market the book effectively. In 2013 I joined forces with Permanent Publications to revise and update the book, and (in my admittedly biased view) it’s turned out rather well, in fact The Log Book eventually hit #58 in the Amazon best-seller ranking and has sold over 10,000 copies to date.
Anyone interested in reviewing a copy, or asking me awkward questions, should drop me a line using the contact form here.
What people are saying
The Log Book is the ultimate fireside read. … Make sure you do not light up without it.The Observer
I had no idea there was so much to know about burning timber in a stove. Would recommend this book, full of useful information.An Amazon customer
I have now read quite a few books on the subject or wood burners and this is the best. It provides a good balance between practical advice vs. scientific explanation and the author clearly knows his subject.An Amazon customer
I found the book easy to read and it has taught me more than the instructions that arrived with the stove, enabling me to use it more efficiently.An Amazon customer
