5 Star Review for the 6th Edition: "Great book if you want to learn the in's and out's of locksmithing. Everything about locks, and locksmithing is laid out very astutely in this book. Get it if you want to know how your door works, among other, more complicated locks."-- (03/27/2016)
5 Star Review for the 6th Edition: "I have several editions of The Complete Book of Locks and Locksmithing. They're all good. I've learned a lot from them. I especially like the sections on lock picking, impressioning, and selling safes."-- (11/03/2005)
5 Star Review for the 6th Edition: "Great book and very detailed in labeling and diagramming the internal mechanisms of a 'Typical' Home door lock. This book was a good refresher on some techniques. I mainly got this book to get a better understanding of how to open door locks more efficiently with power tools, and be more aware of the variety of locks available out there. Just because a certain lock is outdated doesn't mean it's no longer in use. Some people are resistant to changing their locks, and the longer they keep their old locks means lock smiths need to have a good variety of knowledge of all the locks out there in circulation. A great book to read. Its spread out like a physics textbook starting off with vectors and then bringing you into the meat of the lock. No actual physics math required, but some knowledge on torque is a must. LOVE THIS BOOK."-- (07/30/2015)
