Brad has taken a potentially boring subject and made it interesting to read.  His years at the bench are obvious from the detailed descriptions of what goes on in the shop.  We want to build a state of the art shop.  When we finish, this book will deserve most of the credit for its design.
David Lantz – New Hampshire


This is going to be one of those classic books that comes to mind whenever someone asks about going into the trade or gets serious about making their shop profitable.  There is a lot of practical business sense and many bench tips.
John Caro – Virginia


Very well done.  An excellent reference guide and tool for jewelers.  The guides on profitability are very well laid out as well as the take-in guides and shop layout.  Jewelers will definitely benefit from this book.  I recommend it to all.
Arthur Gordon – Oklahoma


Brad Simon reviews much of what should be common sense, but unfortunately is often overlooked.  It is good to see it laid out and explained from a bench jeweler’s perspective.  Thanks Brad for such an informative manual.
