Critics are raving about Sam Maloof 36 Views of a Master Woodworker! Here are some of the recent reviews:

 

"Fun, lighthearted, beautiful stories, this memoir is one to be savored...this is a tribute to an amazing man who’s work will never be forgotten, with people coming together to reveal the ‘best of the best’ in the world of woodworking. And a man who had such great passion for his art that he was kind enough to share it with one and all.”

-FEATHERED QUILL

"...a very captivating read that has as much to say about the creative process as it does about the woodworker himself. Highly recommended, whether you're a professional or amateur woodworker, or simply revel in the creative life."

"...the person who emerges from these stories is both the proud product of the community from which he originated and an anchor of the Pomona Valley arts scene he helped create. Surprising and illuminative, Sam Maloof places not only art, but also the role of the artist, at the heart of our culture."
