Will Rolls first started in the biomass industry working for the Forestry Commission as a regional woodfuel coordinator in the East Midlands. He moved to Forest Research in 2009 and currently works for the Biomass Energy Centre, a specialist technical-advisory unit providing impartial advice on woodfuel and biomass production and use. The Log Book is a personal project in response to many inquiries from the public that show a poor level of understanding of how to use wood-burning stoves.Review:
I recommend this book if you're the owner of a wood stove and don't know if you're doing the right things with it; this was my predicament. If you're buying a stove, buy this book and read it beforehand. If you're selling stoves, buy a box (or more) of these books and give one away with each stove. The time and money investment, even if you only learn a few things, will pay itself back in almost no time, especially if you re using a lot of fuel. Pete Cooper, Permaculture magazine
