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
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
…if I thought I was keen about my new burner beforehand, reading this book got me properly excited!An Amazon customer
I got the book soon after getting our first wood-burning stove, and I’ve got to say it’s packed full of really useful information.An Amazon customer
…if you like people to think you know what you’re talking about when it comes to fire, wood, nature, survival (and all that sort of thing) then this book well equips you. Also a good investment practically, I should add as you will learn how to burn fires most efficiently for the rest of your life.An Amazon customer
