Listen to Dr. John L. Hunsucker, of Texas: 
I have been a chip carver for at least 40 years.  Bought a copy of your book several years ago.  Without a doubt, this is the single best reference for chip carving that I have ever seen.  Even an old dog can learn new tricks from your book and it seems to hit just the right level for beginning carvers.
