This book does a great job capturing the mechanical part of the essence of homebrewing. It's well written and well illustrated, but is it useful? Some of the gadgets are too simple to warrant inclusion and a few are unnecessarily elaborate. But, by and large, it includes a lot of gadgets that you could develop, with a little creativity, on your own (and Homebrewing is all about being creative). You might not make/use the gadgets, but it makes you think about the process.
So, yes, it's useful, especially if you use that saved creativity for tinkering with hops, malts and yeasts.

If you like gadgets, and brewing, this book could prove dangerous. I couldn't stop drooling over the possibilities of building my own temperature controlled fermentation room with tons of neat little tricks. Good book for the brewer that likes to play with building things, or just wants to spend tons of money on equipment. Conversely, it provides many of the cheapest solutions to brewing equipment I've seen yet.
