Content is basic, but good.

The content is very high level blacksmithing information. The plans/instructions for tools in the end would be better in print than audio format. I didn't particularly care for the narrator. Often his diction and the inflection in his voice would throw me off as he would end a declarative statement as if it were a question or he wasn't sure.

Overall ok, but wish it had more than an hour of content to be worth a credit.

More editing with audiobook

reader drops the "F" bomb when he makes a mistake and says
"Back in the back in the medieval times, charcoal and charcoal residue called coke, are primarily used to fuel the F*(k."
the sentence is then corrected saying Forge.
It did catch me off guard and made me laugh.
