'Norwegian Wood - Chopping, Stacking, and Drying Wood the Scandinavian Way' is the phenomenal Norwegian bestseller that aims to answer everything you wanted to know about wood but were afraid to ask.

Chopping and stacking wood is a pastime where the world makes sense once more. Because our relationship to fire is so ancient, so universal, it seems that in learning about wood you can also learn about life. And who better to impart this wisdom than an expert from Scandinavia, where the extreme climate has obliged generations to hone and share their skills with tools, wood and heat production.

Lars Mytting has distilled the wisdom of enthusiasts, from experienced lifelong growers, stackers and burners, to researchers and professionals of combustion and tree culture, to produce this unparalleled handbook. Part guide to the best practice in every aspect of working with this renewable energy source, part meditation on the human instinct for survival, this definitive book has resonated across the world. Whether you are a seasoned woodcutter, or your passion is yet to be kindled, Norwegian Wood is the perfect fireside read.

Lars Mytting was born in Fåvang, Norway in 1968. An author and journalist, Mytting has now become a household name through his Norwegian Wood book, which has been heralded as 'the definitive wood-cutting bible'.

  Larrs Mytting covers the subject matter in more depth than I had expected. The history of the development of tools and the strategic and social importance of wood to Scandinavians right through to all I need to know about processing wood. There were enough figures and statistics to hold my attention without making the subject too dry. I found this to be an interesting book written with authority, affection and full of clear instructions. This book is a little gem.
