I like Mr. Bowman's books. Sometimes he explains parts of pipefitting the way you think it has to be but have never seen it in words and other times, he shows how to solve problems. You start out wishing you had never seen a problem such as this but once you work one of them, you hope you get such a problem because you know how to work it. Most of all he shows how to think about solutions. Look at some of these solutions in the table of contents. There is a difference in understanding what needs to be done and being able to do it. Modern Methods of Pipe Fabrication helps you learn both. He gives you the formulas for pipe fabrication then how to work them.
